Winston Riley RIP

News that another reggae legend, Winston Riley has passed away after numerous assassination attempts on his life last year. He sang in the one of the greatest harmony groups The Techniques in the 60's and went on to produce some classic reggae songs from 'Double Barrel' by Ansel Collins to Tenor Saw's 'Ring The Alarm' using his famous 'Stalag' rhythm. This photo was taken outside his Orange Street, Kingston studio in 1995.

Here's Rob Kenner's obituary in the New York Times with one of my photos:
