Wailers died on November 1. He was a genuine Mona man - Real Mona as well.
His real name was Seeco Patterson.
His funeral will be at Buttercup Park next week. Like Rita Marley, he was born in Cuba.

No man, most others are significantly younger than him. Familyman is alive and may be still touring with and leading one version of the Wailers. Junior Murvin the American lead guitarist is another leading another 'Waliers Band' Bob, Carly (whose wife put out a hit on him many yrs ago) and Seeco are the only ones I know of passing on i.e. not counting Peter, Bunny and Junior Braithwaite who returned to JA and was murdered. Man left in the '60's only to come home 90's to die by the gun.

Walk Good Seeco, and thanks for your contribution.

He moved to Mona in the 80s after Bob died and was always seen at Real Mona matches. Good innings dat. A friend saw him in the last week of October. - He was in a wheel chair and didn't recognize my brethren. He didn't look well, but my brethren didn't think he'd be dead in a few days.

Aston is still alive although not active - he'll be 75 on the 22nd. Carlton died in 1987 - his wife was found guilty of the crime along with others. She was later freed.

Al was earlier Junior came on after, now thinking about it Bob rarely toured with horns but when he did Cedric 'Im' Brooks was his sax player (the Guy who was shouting Jah Rastafari during Marley's trance-like dance at Peace Concert) he has left us too. I think Al played that beautiful solo bridge on 'Waiting in Vain' In an interview Junior Murvin said just before Bob did that dance and asked Manley n Seaga to come on stage he Ad Libbed 'Wa, Wa, Watch what yuh doin' He said the crowd thought he was admonishing them to live right but that was aimed at him who had played a wrong note. Says that his how he knew that the 'spirit-dance' was spontaneous.
