The Reggae World Lost Gregory Issacs (R.I.P.) This Morning
Today ST joins the rest of the reggae world (and music world) in mourning the loss of one of the most unique voices ever to emerge from Jamaica, Gregory Issacs.
Issacs is one of the most famous Reggae Stars to emerge in the 70's from Jamaica, though he never achieved the same level of commercial success enjoyed by Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, or Jimmy Cliff, but Gregory had classics. 'Slave Master', 'Down The Line', 'Cool Ruler', 'Black a Kill Black', and (of course) 'Night Nurse' place him firmly amongst the all time greats. He would surely be missed.
