RIP Ranking Roger: Dave Wakeling Speaks with Richard Blade

Hey Beat fans,

As we continue to process the loss of our friend and brother Ranking Roger, our dear friend Richard Blade was kind enough to have a conversation with Dave Wakeling on his SiriusXM 1st Wave show, to talk about the loss and allow Dave to dedicate a song to Roger.

Part One:

Part Two:

Here’s the full-length version of the song Dave Wakeling dedicated to Ranking Roger: NEVER DIE.

The band would again like to thank everyone for their heartfelt messages and condolences. We send our deepest sympathies to Roger’s family. This massive outpouring of love from fans worldwide, from all walks of life, is humbling to us all.

  1. Hi,
    Where can I purchase the collection of music you have on your website? Can’t find it on iTunes or the best of English Beat. Some of those songs I haven’t heard and I’d love this collection.
    Please, please.
    RIP Ranking Roger!

  2. My heart is broken … love English Beat and GP. Nothing but happy memories from days gone by. RIP Ranking Roger.

  3. All of my love to you, Ranking Roger and the English Beat family everywhere. Many Thanks for all the music, joy and kindness.©2012-2016//©2000-2016
