While lots of bands have been influenced by reggae, very few white bands have pulled off convincing sounding reggae sound.
There are the obvious culprits (The Police for instance, but I’m not keen apart from ‘Voices’ but that does not sound very reggae), but on the whole this is a very barren landscape.
Now I may get a flood of ‘what about…..’ and you’ve ‘forgotten……’, well that’s as maybe and if you have any suggestions I will consider a part 2.
Well I hope you enjoy this as much as I had putting this together RPX.
