A Tour of Coventry Music Museum

Last June I visited The Coventry Music Museum. It’s a wonderful experience for anyone who knows anything about Ska music.

After hearing the sad news that Terry Hall passed away I had to dig up these photos for you. There were so many nice messages on Mastodon this morning on the #TerryHall hashtag I think a lot of people will be interested to see the actual car that was used in the Ghost Town video.

The car was found in a very bad state of disrepair and was lovingly restored by fans who volunteer at the museum.

The bedroom has a huge number of posters and just stuff that you’ll recognise if you grew up in the UK or Ireland in the 80s.

The guitar is a Fender Telecaster that was signed by all The Specials prior to their return in 2008.

The organ was used by Jerry Dammers in Ghost Town.

This is only a selection of what’s there in the museum. If you’re around Coventry it’s well worth a visit!
