Prayers for my father

Hail Mi Irieites,

Today, I bear strong thoughts of my father, Charles Percival Hinds (15.11.1921- 08.11.2003).

Even now I give thanks for his endurance, patience and belief in the band; long before the world had recognised our potential.  It was through his eyes that I initially viewed the world and its political history.  Though his methods were crude in description, I was able to adapt and interpret from him the energy, that you, our fans, have been able to identify with in our music.

Homage to the original Mr Hinds….

  3. Jah’s blessings to you and yours. The word “visionary” was put in my mind. I lost my mom 19 years ago this month and my father 19 years ago next month. They are forever with me. I understand your feelings. Peace and love, Sir.
