Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: Robbie Shakespeare Memorial 12-18-21

Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Friends,

On December 8th, we lost the great bassist and producer, Robbie Shakespeare. He passed away in Miami after undergoing kidney surgery. He was 68 years old. Robbie was an exceptional musician who joined drummer Sly Dunbar to form one of the most prolific production and rhythm sections in music history. Robbie played on countless cuts over his five decades plus career, many that we hold dear on the show, so to honor Robbie, we picked our favorite bass lines from Robbie’s early career and played them during the first half of our tribute. And for the second half, we played many of the tracks/bass lines that Robbie, himself, selected as his favorite creations. We send our deepest respects to his family, his longtime musical brother, Sly Dunbar, and the countless musicians who worked with Robbie over his five decades plus career. Rest in power, Mr. Shakespeare. Bless you, Sir. Generoso and Lily
