Jack Scorpio, Deejay Pan Head and producer Jah Screw. (1992)

This image was shot at Scorpio studio in West Kingston. When I was doing my book “Reggae Island” I used to hang out at all the studios but I probably spent the most time at Scorpio Studio. Scorpio’s was always a busy place with all kinds Deejays always coming and going. On this day I ran into producer Jah Screw (Paul Love) and Mr. Scorpio himself, it was not long till Pan Head showed up. He was a busy guy back then, I used to run into him (Pan Head) at almost every studio I went to, he was recording for everyone. Every time I ran into him he would always ask me to do a shot of him, so I probably have more shots of him than any other Deejay at that time. He was a real good youth, but unfortunately met a tragic early demise at the hands of some gunman.

    • Hey Steve, long time ! I think I have more different pics of him than any other DeeJay at the time, he used to be everywhere. Check out some of his other pics on the blog.
