    Night Nurse "Gregory Isaacs" Passes on! RIP

    Reggae star Gregory Isaacs dies at age 60
    by Simon Vozick-Levinson (EW.Com)

    Famed Jamaican singer Gregory Isaacs died of cancer today at his London home, his manager confirms. He was 60.

    Isaacs became one of the world’s biggest reggae stars in the 1970s and 1980s with major hits like “Night Nurse” (hear it after the jump) and “Rumours,” spanning the transition from more traditional styles to synth-based dancehall.

    “Yes, it’s true,” Isaacs’ manager, Copeland Forbes, writes in an email to the Music Mix. “Gregory passed away this morning in London at 4 A.M. He had a tumor which had spread to other areas of his body. He was 60 years old. I spoke with him last week and he said that I should read Psalm 41 and Psalm 91 for him. I had made arrangements to go back to London on Wednesday to see him as I hadn’t seen him since we went to London together to do the Big Chill Festival (his last show in his life), which had over 60,000 people in attendance. He was the only reggae act on the bill. May his soul rest in peace.”

    Please join the Music Mix in sending our condolences to the family, friends, and fans of reggae’s “Cool Ruler.”

    Night Nurse, that's just one smooth song. I never get tired of listening to it. Really enjoyed his music. RIP Gregory Isaacs.

    So sad. I remember they had banned him for many years from coming to the USA to perform due to drug usage.

    RIP

    sure did. He became very famous and now that he's dead, you will hear and see more of him. They've already began a documentary. RIP

    Hahaha, yes that would work better, lol... At first I thought Princess was talking about some nickname for the olympic swimmer guy that died recently from a heart attack during competition, hahaha... but since its a real octopus she added into the trio, that makes it more funny.

    Ok, let's replace him (Octopus) w/Happy Days Tom (love Tom). Next World Cup - who will be the predictor? I will miss Paul, he was so on the money.

    That's hard to believe. You don't like reggae, Zen? What kinda music do you listen to?
