Byron Lee, one of the towering figures in Jamaican Reggae music in the last 50 years, took the Final Taxi at 73.
Lee’s music was beloved throughout the Caribbean and around the world. His long-running band, the Dragonaires became one of the most sought after hotel bands on the tourist-centric north coast of Jamaica. After having a few ska hits in Jamaica and the UK, they appeared in the James Bond film Dr. No in 1962.
