R.I.P., Reggae Great Gregory Isaacs
Reggae legend Gregory Isaacs died at the age of 59 at his home in London after battling cancer for a year, says BBC News.
The "Cool Ruler" was the purveyor of "lover's rock"--slow, dancey tunes that used hookey reggae downbeats with crooney R&B vocals.
Isaacs' son Kevin tweeted, "R.I.P Dad, you're a great father to me and my Idol. That's all I can say for now, I'm hurt. My dad just died. Give thanks to all his supporters."
