REGGAE LEGEND, BUNNY RUGS, PASSES AWAY AT 65
"We are so sad to hear of the passing of William "Bunny Rugs" Clarke, one of reggae's greatest voices. His band, Third World, has been an inspiration to us all - in fact, their records set the template for the mix of intelligent songwriting, top notch musicianship, diversity of styles, and production quality that we have always strived for with our own work. Some of us first met Bunny Rugs over twenty years ago, and he was always warm, friendly, and funny. We were blessed to have worked with him on "Lovely Rita" from Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band, where his unique and soulful vocal stylings took the song to another level. Our condolences go out to his family and to the entire Third World family. He will be missed.  photo Bunny-Rugs-TIME-cover-.jpg " More info »
