Veteran Producer Lloyd Campbell Is Dead


Lloyd Campbell, veteran record producer of Joe Frasier and Spiderman Productions, died yesterday October 4th at the Sunrise Medical Center in Florida at 7:45 a.m.


His daughter, Michelle 'Lady English' Campbell, said the family is devastated right now, but is happy for the outpouring of love and support they have been receiving since the news broke.

"He was very sick for the last two weeks and we had little chance of preparing," she said.

According to Michelle, her father had been fighting cancer for the past 10 years, but being a private person, he didn't talk much about it.

"Seeing his decline like that, it was shocking. He was a fighter, and he will be missed. The family will be doing everything to preserve his legacy," she said.



MILD HEART ATTACK


South Florida radio disc jock, Clinton Lindsay, who had been friends with Campbell since 1989, credits him as the one who encouraged him to leave the fast-paced New York to relocate, after he had a scare with a mild heart attack.

"Campbell was a genuine person. He loved music, but most of all, he cared about people. Even during his sickness, you would never have guessed, he was still busy working on an album with Mikey Spice, as well as doing his radio show - Saturday Vibes, which he co-hosts with Bigger Boss," said Lindsay of his friend.

The album, according to Lindsay, was slated to be released sometime this month.

Campbell, who was born in Kingston, relocated to the United Kingdom, where he was involved in the sound-system business. A few years later, he returned to Jamaica, where he started his Spiderman label, producing songs with some of Jamaica's popular artistes like The Itals, Tristan Palmer, Joy White, Hugh Griffiths, Yellowman, and Gregory Isaacs.

Years later, Campbell migrated to the United States - Miami to be exact - where he operated the successful Joe Frasier label and ran it with his daughter, Michelle.

Campbell died at age 68 and leaves behind four children and his parents.
