This is so very, very sad. I heard he was in the hospital, but assumed he would be back soon. What happened? I've looked on the net and there is no news of how he passed.

Here's my last memory of seeing him alive:

I waited through 5.5 hours of DJ music at NWWRF in Oregon last summer, just to see Third World live for only the second time. I thought with all things considered and the crowd somewhat confused and disappointed (as has been written, some of the artists weren't paid and there was a long, and I mean LONG wait for any band to take the stage), Third World come on stage and played a really good, solid, energetic set that had the crowd in a good mood and even temporarily forgetting what had happened during the day (at least for me, anyway). Poor Bunny was cold though, and at one point he had to get a coat on, as it was pretty late in the night. But even with all that, Bunny sang through a really good set and I thoroughly enjoyed the classics and some of their newer songs. It appeared that on that late, cold Oregon night, that Third World knew they had to bring it because of what the crowd had been through, and in my honest opinion, they brought it the best they could with all things considered. And how sad that it would be the last time I would see Bunny Rugs alive.

Also, Third World is in the lineup for Reggae On the River this year (and was looking forward to seeing them again), and one of the top acts, and potentially even one of the nights' headlining spots (Friday or Sunday - Jimmy Cliff is headlining Saturday). I wonder what will happen now.

But all that aside, his passing appears to have happened somewhat suddenly, and you got to feel for Bunny's family, friends, fellow band members, and all reggae fans around the world that they brought happiness too.
