    This one hurts as well. I wasn't "born" into reggae but I had a half cousin who worked for Island Records. He introduced me to Marley, Black Uhuru etc... I later became a big fan of old school reggae. Toots was often described as the "Otis Redding" of reggae, I'm not sure that description was apt but his voice did have the rasp of Otis and Wilson Pickett. "Funky Kingston" live on!

    Sayers was one of my favourite players. I was a big kid so ended up on the offensive line but when I closed my eyes I saw myself as Sayers gliding gracefully barely touching the turf.......

    I remember watching her on The Muppet Show, I would have been ten or eleven. Thought she was cute!

    A truly sad way to leave this world, what a shame.
