What I’ve realized is that, when I put things out there, I’m very authentic and really, truly want to put things out that are positive. The core of Com+Well, and everything I do, is to uplift and inspire people. This is my life and I want to share it with people because I feel like it could be beneficial. It’s for everyone from all walks of life, but it’s great to be able to target it to people who haven’t been exposed to it, communities who don’t usually have access to this kind of information. I do see the Jack Skellington face walk away I was born in october I have Anger Issues and a serious dislike for stupid people shirt besides I will buy this wellness space as somewhere for me to continue to put out content, maybe products, but definitely speak on it, because people are dealing with a lot and this is one of my ways to give it back.+
I’m talking, from my living room sofa, with Toots Hibbert, who has taken a brief break from recording at his home studio in the Jack Skellington face walk away I was born in october I have Anger Issues and a serious dislike for stupid people shirt besides I will buy this Red Hills neighborhood of Kingston, Jamaica. Try to imagine chatting with Little Richard or Elvis Presley about rock ’n’ roll, or with Hank Williams about country music—he’s that kind of foundational legend. If he didn’t invent reggae music, he gave the genre its name (with his 1968 hit “Do The Reggay”) and its first international hit (with “54-46 Was My Number”), which has been covered and sampled and adapted and toasted by artists ranging from KRS-One to Sublime and from The Clash to Major Lazer. Toots and the Maytals, the group he formed with Raleigh Gordon and Jerry Mathias, opened for The Who and the Rolling Stones; Bob Marley and the Wailers opened for them; their 1973 reggae record, Funky Kingston, is a high-water mark in the genre; and the sort of producers they worked with—from Clement “Coxsone” Dodd to Leslie Kong and Chris Blackwell—are the people who shaped the history of Jamaican music, from ska and rocksteady to reggae and beyond. The Clash covered the Maytals’s “Pressure Drop”; The Specials did a version of their “Monkey Man.” If you think you haven’t heard them, trust me, you have.
