The original Rude Boy Neville Staple heading to LMF
The Original Rude Boy, Neville Staple is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice.
Neville’s thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented. From the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials, & FunBoy3 in the late ‘70s and 80’s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the 90’s up to the present day.
Following on from the 2009 Specials reunion and his departure from the band in late 2012, he continues to be a forerunner of the ska movement, and continues to thrill audiences with his own excellent band at venues and festival appearances worldwide.
Headlining The Avalon Stage at Glastonbury 2015 Neville has a way with people, he cares about his audience and wants to give them a good time. In return, the crowd, are word perfect on every song, and each event turns into a party.
