The late, great Jacob Miller is one of my favorite reggae artists ever. Together with his band Inner Circle (who later gained fame for the song "Bad Boys"), they became one of the most popular reggae groups of the late 70's "Rockers" genre. Unfortunately, as the charismatic Miller was about to gain international fame, he died in a car accident at the age of 27. Even still, he left behind a legacy of fantastic music. Check out the famously chunky musician in action in these two clips:
First, a live performance of "We a Rockers."
Next is a clip from the 1977 BBC documentary "Roots, Rock, Reggae: Inside the Jamaican Scene."
Have a fabulous Music Monday!
