Ok, let's make it short; Desmond Dekker died of a heart attack yesterday. You can get the details e.g. from here. Most kids maybe think of him as the dude with the song from that film" (which still is a banging flick) , but to me he was one of the best "pop" icons onf reggae. He goes right up there with Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown, Toots Hibberts, Greogory Isaacs, and wel.. yuh know ... that Marley-character.
