We know how he loved this island, and we deeply appreciate all he, his family and the Montserrat Foundation have done to focus the world on Montserrat, both before and after the volcanic eruptions in 1995-1997. We extend our condolences to his family, and grieve with them the passing of a great man, and with him the passing of an era. His legacy is
some of the greatest music ever made.”
