Lucky Dube, 1964-2007
I never saw Bob Marley perform, but I did catch Lucky Dube a couple times. The hard-touring South African was often compared to Marley. And he deserved it. His conscious roots-based music recalled Marley's positive spirit and his live shows were obvious tributes to Marley's legacy. Lucky Dube was murdered yesterday. "My Brother, My Enemy" is found on Trinity, a 1995 release issued in the United States by a Motown subsidiary.

Iron your fancy pants- Miguel DeLeon's excellent salsa band is at the Madrid on Saturday. I'm not sold on the Police cover, though.
