Could be ah Political .. Apple is one of the most positive singers bringing forth nothing but positivity. He has had trouble w/ some promoters before(what reggae artist hasn't) And the whole thing w/ I Vibes , Wadi Gad wierdness. Maybe favortism from tha promoters.. Hopefully im wrong. Would Loooooove to see em at SNWMF..

By the way Ras K Apple Craig and Apple Gabriel are the same person, I am not sure why he goes by both. But Albert Griffiths: totally different.

Jahboo, the bummer is that had everything fallen into place Don Carlos would have been on the tour also. No worries though. Be on the lookout for Groundation with Apple and Don on tour after they get back from Europe this year. Groundation making strides with the elders.

so who is the guy in the apple green outfits with the crutch in one hand and the mic in the other singing for izzy vibes? that is apple gabriel right? there is two of them if im correct.

i saw izzy vibes at doheny days last year and it was only the polio stricken cat in the apple green outfit.

That is Wiss and Skelly, apple hasn't played with Izzy in years .
P.S. it was the only "Polio stricken cat" is a pretty disrespectful way to refer to an ailing legend. Especially when you have no idea of whom you are refering to.

All three had Polio at very young ages..

The original Israel Vibration...(L to R) Skelly, Apple, Wiss. Each afflicted with childhood polio, they met at Kingston's Mona Rehabilitation Clinic.
If I overstand whappen correctly, ego clashes esp. between Skelly & Apple split up the singers, once in the 80s, then for good in the late 90s. I still feel that Apple is the most talented of the 3 both in vocals and songwriting, but judging from his solo output and also the latest work from the remaining 2 IVs it's clear that the whole was much greater than the sum of the parts. At least Dr. Dread of RAS records got them back together for a while.
