Simple Simon-NOT SURE WHEN OR WHY, BUT HIS MISS BY THE REGGAE FRATERNITY RIP BRETHREEN.


(update)
Jamaica’s Foundation Dancehall Singer Simple Simon had a special gift of a talented lyricist, as his songs have enriched every collectors shelf with many, hit singles throughout his career.

In 1985 he recorded the albums ‘Bad Man’ produced by Ranking Joe and ‘Reggae move’ a production by Bunny Lee.

Although diagnosed with terminal cancer in late 2000, Simple Simon refused to allow his illness to disable his ability to continue to perform and promote classic reggae music.

He even refused to have his larynx removed
when he found out he’d never be able
to sing again. After a long battle with cancer of the oesophagus, he died on February 6, 2004.

I somehow came across this artist listening to some music and thought to look him up and was very surprised with what I've found with his family having the same last name as I do. I never knew my father nor any of his family, and the little that I do know is that his name was Amos Somers and that he was killed by the police while being active in the JDF in the 1970's. I don't know if there's some connection with the name Somers but would love to get some feed back
