This one hit me hard. I was so excited to see him next year. And I would probably be seeing him this very weekend if it weren’t for covid.
I should also note that is heavily speculated that his passing was most likely related to covid-19 complications.
god damn it the loss of all these amazing artists is so hard, rip toots
Shit. I never got to see 'em. They were such an incredible band, I always liked them a little more than the Wailers. Sad day man, sad day.
