Lloyd Knibb - Skatalites Drummer and Founding Member- Dead at 80

The title says it all. I have read on the wire that a legend has passed but a few hours ago. I'm waiting for a permanent source to pop up so I can properly cite the Wikipedia article but I'm fairly certain it's true.

For those that don't know, the Skatalites are one of the oldest extant ska bands (known as first wave ska).

Original post: Skatalites Drummer Lloyd Knibb Reported to Have Passed Away, May 12, 11:24 p.m.: Condolences are pouring in on Facebook for Lloyd Knibb, legendary drummer of The Skatalites.

According to a comment on the Skatalites Facebook page, Knibb died today in Jamaica at 6:40 p.m. around friends and family. He was 80 years old.

Knibb is credited for inventing the ska beat at Coxson Dodd's Studio One. He played his last show in Peru about a month ago.

Knibb was born on March 8, 1931 in Jamaica, and was best known for his contribution to ska rhythms.

He played for The Skatalites and for Tommy McCook & The Supersonics. Knibb started out playing in jazz bands in the 1940s, starting with the Val Bennett band and developing technical skills in the jazz band of Eric Dean, playing popular dances of the day (rumba, cha cha) as well as Glen Miller songs.

​ Culture Beat Performing Arts Center in Ensenada, Mexico, where the Skatalites were supposed to perform on May 27, just confirmed Lloyd Knibb's passing.
For me, today will be a day of listening to the Skatalites, in honor of his memory.
