Playing tracks by
Amy Winehouse, Lucky Dube, Banana Man, UB40, Claudius Linton and more.
This summer Amy Winehouse died and joined the Club of 27. Maybe i'd cursed her cause i told everyone 5 years ago this girl wouldn't get older than 27. She loved ska and played several times with The Specials.
But Amy ain't the only artist who died to soon. In this show you can listen to Lucky Dube (murdered by car jackers), Jackie Opel and Jacob Miller (both died in a car crash),
And what about Banana Man? He fell of a wall while he was sleeping. Slim Smith bled to death after cutting himself by a broken window at his parents house. Burglars shot Peter Tosh as they were frustrated he didn't had any money at home.
Marguerita was the girlfriend of Skatalites trombonist Don Drummond. He killed her on New Years day 1965. Four years later he died in jail and it's been a rumour his dead wasn't natural.
Listen and enjoy the music!
