Graham McPherson a.k.a. Suggs was born on 13 January, 1961 in Hastings, Sussex. With his mother, he moved to London in the mid-70s and became lead singer with Madness in 1977. The band had been founded by Mike Barson, Lee Thompson and Chris Foreman.
Madness keep on producing original quality music and are still one of Britain’s most successful bands.
But also his solo album „The Lone Ranger“, produced by Sly & Robbie, is brilliant.
For more on Suggs, FROM Suggs, we recommend his autobiography „That Close“.
