Winston Grennan; Foundation of reggae

Loving reggae for how many years now? We just learned about this guy…Winston Grennan. Remember his name. Credited with inventing the one-drop rhythm. Foundation of reggae

Looked it up after listening to “mother and child reunion” by Paul Simon-a song we had heard a hundred times plus and always wondered A) what the song was about B) who is playing those nasty Jamaican drums

Turns out the song was named after a dish Paul Simon saw at a Chinese restaurant. The tune was about the dead family dog, and the drummer was Winston Grennan…legend of legends of a reggae drummer. Learn something new everyday. #livininthefuture #reggae
