R.I.P. Michael Campbell aka MIKEY DREAD

In case you hadn't heard this sad news yet, Michael Campbell aka Mikey Dread passed away on March 15th 2008.

He was a truly original artist who overcame many obstacles and paved the way for future generations. singer, selecta, poet, scholar, producer, and a man of true wisdom....

(he was also the first reggae artist to turn me on to reggae at the age of 8, when I first heard the Clash's Sandinista LP )

we will never forget you Mikey Dread...
