Edward "Bunny" Lee, legendary Jamaican reggae and dub producer, has died. He was 79.
Trojan Records, which has a licensing deal with Lee, confirmed the news on its website. While no cause of death has been revealed, Jamaican broadcaster Clinton Lindsay reported that the producer was “battling kidney problems for the past few months.”
"Friendly, astute and affable, he always willing to offer assistance to others, remaining a great friend of Trojan over the years that followed its inception in 1968," Trojan Records wrote. "He will be hugely missed to all of those who knew him personally or through his incredible catalogue of music."
