Suggs from the British ska band Madness sent this message to Tim. Madness are one of the most well-known British bands, being prominent in the ska revival of the late 1970s and early 1980s. They have had 15 singles reach the UK top ten, and hold the record for most weeks spent by a group in the 1980s UK singles charts. In 2012, the band performed at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace and at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games.
