The studio of legendary music producer Bunny Striker Lee went up in flames recently in St. Andrew Jamaica.
Lee’s Gorgon Entertainment studio hosted and produced music for the great artist including the iconic Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Beenie Man and Elephant Man to name a few.
Lee told the Jamaican Observer that his engineer Newton Williams was in the studio when the fire started. Williams said he was setting up for a vocal session and as he plugged in the 24-track tape, he heard a popping sound. By the time he turned around the room was engulfed in flames. Luckily he only suffered minor burns.
The damage was estimated at 100 million dollars, with Lee’s music equipment uninsured. Lee said Peter Tosh recorded Maga Dawg in the studio and Nicky Thomas recorded ‘Love of the Common People’ and ‘Have a Little Faith”.
It’s all about the clean up process now and the veteran producer hopes to restart operations later this year.
