† Lloyd Brevett of the Skatalites

Lloyd Brevett did not survive his son for very long. According to the Jamaica Gleaner, he died today at the age of 80. In the Jamaica Observer, his wife “said the 80-year-old’s health had rapidly deteriorated following the shooting death of his son, Okine, in the early hours of February 26 near his home in Seaview Garden, St Andrew, where the family lived.” Lloyd has touched millions of hearts and will always be remembered as one of Jamaica’s greatest. Condolences to his family.
