Bungy Wailer, a prominent figure in reggae and the last surviving founding member of the legendary band The Wailers, died on Tuesday in his hometown of Jamaica. He was 73 years old.
The baritone singer Wailer, whose name is Neville Livingston (Neville Livingston), joined the late superstars Bob Marley and Peter Tosh in 1
The local Reggae musician Blvk H3ro said: “Jah-B is a pioneer, always breaking the boundaries of expression with songs, styles or verbal expressions.” “There was and always only one Neville Livingston.”
Manager Maxine Stowe told the Associated Press that Wailer died of a stroke in July at Andrews Memorial Hospital in the Parish of St. Andrew, Jamaica.
As people share the music, memories and pictures of this famous artist, his death is mourned all over the world.
Jamaican politician Peter Phillips wrote in a Facebook post: “The last death of the original Wailers, Bunny Wailer, ended the most active period in the history of Jamaican music.” “Baby Bunny is a good, conscious Jamaican brother.”
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness also paid tribute to Wyler and called him “a respected senior politician in the Jamaican music industry” in a series of tweets.
He wrote: “This is a huge loss for Jamaica and Reggae. There is no doubt that Bunny Wheeler’s outstanding contribution to the music industry and Jamaican culture will be remembered forever.”
When Wailer traveled around the world, he was more at home in the mountains of Jamaica. He likes farming while writing and recording songs on his record company, Solomonic.
Willer told the Associated Press in 1989: “I think my love for this country is actually more than for the city.” It has more to do with life, health and strength. The city sometimes takes it away. This country is good for meditation. It has fresh food and a fresh atmosphere-to make you linger. “
A year ago, in 1988, he chartered a plane and flew to Jamaica with food to help people affected by Hurricane Gilbert.
Sometimes people pay less attention to these things (food), but it turns out that they are the most important things. I am a farmer. “He told the Associated Press.
He is the third and last original Wailer. Marley died of a brain tumor in 1981 at the age of 36, while Tosh was shot dead in Jamaica in 1987 at the age of 42.
