Gregory Isaacs - 1951-2010

I am devastated to hear the news that Gregory Isaacs has died... one of my all-time favorite singers and performers and it's with tears in my eyes that I face the prospect of creating a Gregory Isaacs tribute long before it should be due... I am so thankful that I had the chance to see Gregory on countless occasions and he is a voice in reggae that will sadly be missed. Rest in peace Gregory, we'll miss you.

This is damned sad news... When I was finally ready to venture outside of the "Wailer circle" of reggae (Marley, Bunny, Tosh, ...), it was an Gregory Isaacs album I brought home. (I wish I could remember the name of it... It was one of several stolen from me by a "friend," back in the early 80's.)

The Cool Ruler lives on. He'll always be playing on my sound system.

I have great hopes for his son, Kevin Isaacs, too.
