Update: The New York Times has a very informative obituary for Isaacs, which may be read here.

Also, Wax Poetics' September/October 2010 all-reggae issue also happens to have an interview with Gregory Isaacs that is definitely worth finding and picking up (and the issue includes features on Augustus Pablo, Sugar Minott, Beres Hammond, Bob Andy, Chris Blackwell, and more).

I have that issue of Wax Poetics and it's fantastic. You can find them in most Barnes & Nobles surprisingly enough.
