Very sad news a true legend Crying or Very sad

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Ska legend Prince Buster died Thursday morning in a South Florida hospital, his son Kareem Ali has confirmed.

The singer/producer, born Cecil Bustamante Campbell, was 78.

Prince Buster was ailing for some time, after suffering a series of strokes.

From West Kingston, Prince Buster was a protégé of producer Clement 'Coxson' Dodd. In the late 1950s, he launched his Voice Of The People sound system and label, which released a number of his self-produced hits including Wash Wash, Blackhead Chineyman and Judge Dread.

Cecil Bustamente Campbell OD (24 May 1938 – 8 September 2016)

R.I.P.

Sadness. I call it sadness.

R.I.P. Prince Buster without whom there would be no 2-Tone.

Too many legends have left us this year

That's terrible news.

The most covered artist by the 2 Tone bands.

There can't be too many of the originators left.

Buster, he sold the heat
With a rock-steady beat


An earthquake is erupting
But not in Orange street
A ghost-dance is preparing
You got to help us with your feet
If you're not in the mood to dance
Step back, grab yourself a seat
This may not be uptown Jamaica
But we promise you a treat
Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
Shuffle me off my feet
Even though I'll keep on runnin'
I'll never get to Orange street


So I'll say there's nothin' left to say
For the man who set the beat
So I'll leave it up to you out there
To get him back on his feet


Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
Shuffle me off my feet
Even though I'll keep on runnin'
I'll never get to Orange street


Bring back the
Who is the
We want the
Bring back the Prince...aahh!

Madness took their 'Don't watch that. Watch this' line from this album. Plus The Beat covered two track from it. And the sleeve layout of the first Specials album was a nod to it.
