I Cannot Even Believe This

If rappers, gangsters, and prisoners want to off each other, I say fine. Less tax-payer money being directed that way if there are fewer of them. But now, Lucky Dube's luck has run out. I am so sad.

I first heard Lucky when I was in college at BYUH, from 1990 to 1993. He had an inimitable voice and style. You could always tell a Lucky Dube song from the first few notes, just like you can tell a U2 song. It's just his "sound". His voice was sweet and unique, like Jon Anderson's. He wrote and sang about social problems in both his native South Africa and around the world.

Rest well, Lucky. God bless your family.
