Lloyd Brevett of The Skatalites is Dead at 80

The great and wonderful ska/reggae bassist and composer Lloyd Brevett, one of the original co-founding members of The Skatalites, died from seizures and complications from a stroke earlier today.

Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.
