Brinsley and Black Star were revered as kings. I also had some groupie action coming my way. I felt like a rock star, they must have thought I was a backup singer or the girlfriend of one of the members. I kept it cool though :-P
Brinsley really gave a spectacular live performance, and kept the vibe going. I found it amazing how he led the Spanish-speaking crowd into a sing along without knowing much Spanish words. You can tell this man is a veteran performer who takes his craft seriously. Black Star is skilled too. I first heard them at the Jamaican Independence Day celebration in Mexico City. I called up one of the members and he took me to their studio where they were watching an Earth, Wind and Fire DVD.
I highly recommend going to your favourite record store and get Aswad records. When Spragga Benz sang: "a Rasta run di world", he knew what's up.
