In Memoriam

This Page is dedicated to the Singers, Musicians and the people who have made their own contribution to Jamaican Music whether home or abroad. We celebrate their works and we are joyful in their legacy, I do not want to dwell on the sadness of their passing.

Over the years I have tried to keep a log of all the Passings in the Reggae World, it has been difficult at times as I sometimes receive information that is more rumour than fact. I have only included information that I have been able to verify.
Any Corrections or extra information gratefully received.

Thank you to all the people for the help. One Love.
