One piece of this magical amalgam of Ska and punky New Wave goodness was singer Neville Staple. Neville has been keeping the spirit and nature of Ska, Rocksteady, and 2 Tone alive through his dynamite solo career.
For many, Toots was the ultimate performer; for others, he was the embodiment of everything that is good in music, and maybe even in this world. Toots Hibbert was a national treasure, and there will never be another like him. His raspy, soulful vocals will forever live on in our hearts and minds.
