November 15, 2005 11:38PM
Okay,

Every year I make a list (for personal projects) of all artists that passed that year. I usually highlight them in my "Best of 2005" show coming up in January.

Can anyone add to the list?

I'll start it off...

WAYNE PARKINSON, A.K.A. Baby Wayne

Big Youth - no way,
If so we all would have heard about it in the grapevine, press etc,
FWIW I just spoke to a promoter about an hour ago who happened to be working on some BY dates for Europe so ....
And anyway BY drives a criss SUV - his biking days through Kingston are in the past
For Chimino....
