William ‘Bunny Rugs’ Clarke, lead singer of the iconic reggae band Third World passed away last night in a hospital in Orlando, Florida at the age of 65. 

 

Clarke had been diagnosed with cancer and had been battling the disease in intensive care, hence his absence during some of the shows in Third World’s 40th anniversary tour in 2013. 

 

During his 31 years with Third World, Clarke has helped to shape the history of reggae.

 

His death, which comes at the start of Reggae month, has shocked the entertainment industry, with several tributes on Facebook last night.

 

Clarke would have turned 66 this Thursday, February 6.
