Fun Boy Free: Terry Hall

Dorian Lynskey, Guardian, The, 22 July 2003

TERRY HALL asks if we can delay the first question until he's had a cigarette. He's not a big small talker, so there's an awkward silence while he fiddles with his rolling papers and tobacco on a sofa in the London flat of his friend Dave Stewart. With his long lugubrious face, he looks a bit fed up, but then he's looked a bit fed up ever since he found fame with Coventry ska heroes the Specials 25 years ago.
