The Mystic Man

Sept 12,1987. I can never forget the shock of that night! Was lucky enough to see your last show at The National Arena DEC '86 I think. Opening act The Skatalites followed by Gregory.

Actually, three shocking nights of Caribbean news remain with me to this day. The assassinations of Maurice Bishop and Walter Rodney are the others.

The brother I 'follow' got to know Peter through Bagga Brown, he was in Canada on vacation at the time.
Can't forget the sorrow in his voice when he called and said/asked 'Man nutt'n can really go suh? It sound really bad and embarrassing in the media up here'
Thanks for the correction Spratty.

Will never forget. Peter was a close friend who used to date my classmate's sister.
I was at school in Canada when this girl called me Saturday morning Sept 12, 1987- my birthday- to tell me that Pater had been shot and killed the previous night. Michael Robinson-another classmate's brother-whose birthday is actually today Sep 13-from Barbican, was also shot in the incident. He thankfully survived.
