REGGAE GOING INTERNATIONAL 1967-1976

The Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee Story

NOEL HAWKS & JAH FLOYD

In 2008 the Jamaican Government conferred the Order of Distinction on Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee for more than forty years of dedicated service to the music industry.

The front cover picture shows him boarding the plane at Palisadoes Airport, Kingston, Jamaica for London, England in February 1968… “and the rest is history”. Here, in his own words, is the incredible story of how reggae went international…

“So I don’t see the colour barrier in reggae music or any other music. It knows no colour. It comes like water. What colour would you call water now? Pure!”

Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee
