Reggae legends, Johnny”Dizzy”Moore, Gladstone”Gladdy”Anderson & Earl”Chinna”Smith Kingston, Jamaica (1998?)
These three reggae legends span the history of reggae music, from the beginnings of Ska, Rock Steady, Lovers Rock & Roots Reggae. I had spoken with Chinna recently after Gladdy Anderson’s passing and he told me how helpful Gladdy was to him. He said when he was starting out in the late 1960’s, it was Gladdy who helped teach about the business and helped him along musically, always pushing him to play and play more.
