Ranking Roger dies

Ranking Roger, legendary vocalist for The Beat, has died aged 56.

The musician born Roger Charlery, who enjoyed hits including "Mirror in the Bathroom" and "Too Nice to Talk To", passed away on 26 March, a post on The Beat's Facebook page confirmed.

Roger was diagnosed with two brain tumours and lung cancer following a mini stroke he suffered in August 2018.

He founded the Beat in Birmingham in 1978. The band became a major pioneer of the two-tone genre, fusing traditional ska with pop, punk, Latin and new wave. The band released three studio albums in the Eighties: I Just Can’t Stop It (1980), Wha’ppen? (1981) and Special Beat Service (1982).
