Not sure yet whether heading straight there from Headingly or meeting folks in the city centre first (in which case there are tons of places to go).

Anyway, what do other people do?

What a loss :-(

I first became aware of Sly & Robbie in the 80's through the work they did with Black Uhuru and they just kept cropping up over and over again.

I first saw them play live in the early 90's when the supported the Taxi Gang tour in Brixton Academy. What I found most amazing was the 30 minute free-form set they did in the middle which I could only describe as being some form of reggae/dub/jazz.

Their list of collaborations is utterly vast. To pick just one, I still listen to the stuff they recorded with Grace Jones - my favourite being the Compass Point Sessions where there are both vocal and dub versions of most of the tunes.

When I heard they were playing in the Jazz Cafe in 2018 I went to see them. They were playing with a jazz trumpet player, Nils Petter Morgan and had an amazing Finnish producer with a massive sound board doing live mixing and sampling. Quite extraordinary.

I was lucky enough to get to say hello to Robbie after the gig - he was hanging around outside having a fag.

Anyway, what a bass player and what a duo. 68 is no age. RIP.

Any decent boozers near the ground for Rangers fans?
