Desmond Dekker drops dead at 65
Reggae legend Desmond Dekker has died suddenly from a heart attack, his manager has announced. RIP Israelite man
16 years ago
He was great. 'Israelites' is one of the greatest songs ever, super catchy, great lyrics, play it to anyone they'll love it. .
Israelites -- check it
i ate with dekker once, after a gig a friend was involved in promoting. a great performer and genuinely decent bloke.
Rest well, Desmond.
I saw him play when I was at uni. He was brilliant. A real sad loss.
They played him at the wedding I was at last week. Awesome.
This blows. I am sad.
. I love Jamaican ska, and Dekker was right up there-- 007 Shantytown was a fine song. He will be missed.
Why do all great Reggae singers die young?
Sad -- his music gave pleasure to many.
