Rest In Peace Joe Gibbs
Another reggae legend has passed this time it was none other then legendary super producer Joe Gibbs. Fortunately this is one of the rare times where violence was not involved seeing as Joe passed from heart attack.
Gibbs is almost unparalleled in terms of volume when it comes to roots, rockers, dub, etc.
In the late 1970's he along with Errol Thompson (producer) worked with just about anyone you could think of including: Dennis Brown, Althea & Donna, John Holt, Barrington Levy, Cornell Campbell, Dean Fraser, Delroy Wilson, Beres Hammond, Ranking Joe, Prince Jazzbo, Prince Mohammed, Dillinger, Trinity, Prince Far I, Clint Eastwood, I-Roy and Kojak & Liza.
He was also responsible for "Two Sevens Clash" by Culture and a lot more.
