Leaves you ‘Ska’d for life’ – he could do – he was a bouncer and a debt collector. Judge Dread was a Ska artist and a comedian and large sized white Englishman (Alex Hughes from Kent). He did an answer record called “Big Six” on the theme of Prince Buster‘s “Big Five” it was banned by the BBC so consequently became a top twenty hit. He died of a heart attack on stage at the age of 53 in 1998. What a guy.
