RIP Frederick "Toots" Hibbert - Liverpool 2011

Published on Thu Oct 8, 2020 by

Sad to hear Jamaican reggae pioneer Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert has died at the age of 77. The legendary musician fronted the reggae and ska band Toots & the Maytals from the early 1960s.

I've seeen them perhaps half a dozen times over the years but only photographed them once in 2011 when they headlined a gig at the Academy here in Liverpool. Of course they played all their hits including Pressure Drop, Sweet and Dandy, and 54-46 That's My Number. A legend.
