For years he was a member of the renowned Inner Circle band and the duo, Bunny and Ricky.
His death, which comes at the start of Reggae month has sent shock waves throughout the entertainment industry, with several tributes on Facebook last night.
Junior Taylor, a former tour manager of the group, said Bunny Rugs’ death was the end of a voice that was very distinctive.
"A voice that throughout the 1970s and 80s, made an impact globally for reggae music.
"It’s not the most pleasant way to start reggae month," he noted adding that Rugs was a very jovial and caring person and the consummate professional.
What a great song, from one of the “Reggae Legends” and still going strong, this is from the album 96 degrees in the shade, from the “art cover series” I always name them because the red, green and blue art covers of the 3 different albums from Third World are for me still their best ones.
I grew up in the eighties and the red album was the second third world album, vinyl record I got, and believe it or not after all those years I ve bought these 3 vinyl records again , still going strong after more than 30 years :)
