R.I.P. Mikey Dread

I took this picture of Mikey a few years ago, and got to meet him briefly afterwards. An amazing performer & producer and a brilliant broadcaster, Mikeys influence stems way beyond reggae into many other forms of music.

He’ll be missed.

Reggae musician Mikey Dread died Saturday, March 15th 2008 at 4:30 pm EST in Connecticut. Michael Campbell better known as Mikey Dread, was a Jamaican singer, producer, and broadcaster.
