RIP very sad news indeed. As per the quote attributed to Mikus: It slowed down everything for everyone else yeah. I just see it as something new came and you have to just get with it or not. That’s what life is like.
Too true as you get older everything change. It does become adapt or ...I

Shocking news. Gone now but not forgotten. It makes me think of the footage of him as a fresh-faced kid in one of the Deep Roots docs.

For me his greatest tune is time is a moment in space and its phenomenal Jammy's dub.

'Dancing Machine' and 'Skull Bore'.....also great tunes from the man.

Again, supremely talented and will be sorely missed.

Very sad to hear this, Wayne was a very peaceful and kind person. May his family find strength during this time.

I saw him perform back a couple years ago, on a bill with johnny osbourne and ranking joe, and I think he totally stole the show. didn't know how many songs he had done that I knew but didn't know he was the artist. and he tore it up with (seemingly natural) energy that night. Really unbelievable that he would pass so soon after as he appeared to be in excellent health.

one love
