The Life & Times of Jimmy Scott: From Inspiring The Beatles ‘Ob La Di Ob La Da’ to Playing Percussion With Bad Manners

A most exskallent read. For the record, I like O Bla Di! What’s not to love? Some people just gotta hate on pop. Beatles did exactly one ska song in their career, they did it well, and it was an original and a great tribute at a time when ska music was still young. Two-Tone happened fully ten years later. Props, babies. Read on and skank on.

Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
