    Say it ain't so! One of my influences, saw him back in the day and was blown away by the power of his groove.
    Groove with the angels, Robbie.

    No! A legend gone. Was just talking about reggae with a fellow TBer and, of course, Sly and Robbie came up. So many recordings - many of them classics - and a big part of Jamaica's musical history. :(

    So bummed. After hearing Dub Factor, I ended up becoming a mix engineer as well as bassist and ended up touring and doing shows for a living for the last 35 years. The man literally changed my life.

    One of the greatest bass players ever.
    He rocked so many vibes, and nailed them all. Go listen to some jams.
