On the passing of Lee Scratch Perry longtime friend and collaborator Mad Professor penned a touching tribute to the late dub visionary:
“The end of an era! We first worked in the early eighties, recording several tracks and doing several tours, having many laughs, sharing many dreams.
Sometimes he is the father, other times the son, sometimes, he is the advisor, other times he is seeing advise! I am missing him already, but happy to have known him. We have released about 20 album releases, and have another 20 albums waiting to be released…the end of an era !”
