Desmond Dekker died last week, and since then I've meaning to post my thoughts on what he meant to me. But I guess other things have taken priority. Things like sushi with Rosa and Dave, disappointing grilled cheese with Miriam, 2 more fillings at the dentist, and life in general.
Desmond Dekker made beautiful music, some of the only music that I listened to in early college that I still listen to. You won't find any Grateful Dead or Bob Marley on my iPod, but you'll find Desmond Dekker.
