  1. yep, its acrying shame. i not near close of a hardcore reggae fan with mainstreams like shelley thunder,beanie man, supercat, marvin young and of course bob,sir rasta. i already heard the passing of my honey sugar minott this past januaray. i see poor eek-amouse made a rum toast tom his memory. he was our otis reading in jamaica, but then i didnt know mr. issacs had died last year. i dont like the sampling and mix dj’ing of the 80’s but his song rumours has a strange look how people dont shut their mouth-republican or democracy approach. if u want to get political-lets be it because our money comes from the government. im soory about his loss. god bless his family too. r.i.p. mr. minott and g-i. thanks for ur help!

  2. r.i.p. mr. rumour-mr. truth telling rasta. may your truth lives on.
