    Source.

    I'm really sad about this. Desmond Dekker had one of the most musical voices ever. It really was beautiful. The world is going to miss him.

    He did a lot of songs on the Harder They Come soundtrack with Jimmy Cliff. If you aren't a ska/reggae fan, chances are you won't know who he is.

    He's like the Elvis of ska.

    I am a ska fan I just don't know him. I like all the mainstream bands like No Doubt, Reel Big Fish, MMBTones...etc is it possible to download his songs or are they rare?

    EDIT: nvm I found some

    Oh...I know a few people who will be devastated. I've heard "Israelites", I love the song.

    Heaven won't be heaven without a little ska.
