REGGAE PIONEER JOHNNY NASH DIES AT AGE 80 IN HOUSTON

According to the Associated Press, songwriter and performer of the 1972 hit “I Can See Clearly Now”, Johnny Nash passed away on Tuesday of natural causes. The news comes from Nash’s son Johnny Nash Jr.

 

Nash was born in 1940 and made his start with the single “A Teenager Sings The Blues” in 1957. He had to wait until his 30’s though, before he found recognition with the 1972 hit “I Can See Clearly Now” which is to this day, still recognizable.

He was also responsible for helping the rise of R&B legend Bob Marley. Nash was the co-founder of JAD Records which focused heavily on the genre of Reggae. Nash’s business partner Danny Sims said to CNN:

“Johnny loved Reggae, and he loved Bob and the guys. He taught Bob [Marley] how to sing on the mic, and they taught Johnny how to play the reggae rhythm.”

Nash passed away in his Houston home on Tuesday October 6 at the age of 80.
