Man this is tragic.
He was an absolute legend.
We had tickets to see Toots and the Maytals here in Melbourne this past January.
but they cancelled the concert due to poor air quality.
This was at the time of the massive bush fires here in Victoria.
Spent my teens dancing along to Toots and Jimmy Cliff etc.
This really is sad news.
I remember commenting to a friend of mine who was going to go to the same concert in January, that Toots looked and sounded just the same as he did back in the early 80’s.
Kind of like the Rolling Stones of Ska.
I spent all day yesterday listening to his music. Saw him in concert a number of times. Once even was involved in preparing his post-concert (vegetarian) meal for a show out on Long Island (NY) sometime around 1978. Great show, small venue. His shows were always great.
