Dudley Sibley apparently posted on FB that Wentworth Vernal has passed. Not a prolific artist by all accounts but I liked what he did with the Termites. RIP Sad

It's a shame he wasn't more prolific. He had a lovely voice, I thought. The Termites were one of the earliest Rocksteady groups, I actively sought out, upon hearing a few of their S1 45's. I still can't understand why I flogged my copy of the Heartbeat CD, of theirs.....I've regretted that, ever since.... Rolling Eyes

I hope he rests well..... Sad

That, or clearly a "d'oh moment".... Wink

I flogged a whole slew of other Reggae related stuff, at that time, too.....I still can't figure out why....It just seemed the right thing to do, for some reason.... Embarrassed Rolling Eyes

Glad to know that...everyone deserves a great birthday (and Christmas).

I've thought this ever since back in the mid 70s, I asked a (then) middle-aged colleague if he'd had a great birthday and had enjoyed his few days off:

"No", he said. "It was terrible, my wife left me!".

Not knowing how to sympathise, I beat a hasty retreat!

Oof. I had a girlfriend, of 4.5 years, leave me, 5 days, after my 25th birthday, back in '04. She had just gotten back from holiday. I had made a wonderful, "welcome home", nosh, too. The silly bitch. Rolling Eyes
