VIDEO clip of ‘No Woman, No Cry’ included
The man featured in Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman No Cry’ classic song, popularly known as ‘Georgie’, is dead.
George Headley Robinson, who Bob said made the fire light and logwood burn through the night, died on Wednesday night.
He was 84 years old.
Robinson had been a fixture at the reggae King’s former Old Hope Road, St Andrew residence – now the Bob Marley Museum – for years, and maintained a humble presence.
He passed on some 40 years after Marley, whose legacy continues to shine bright around the world.
The exact cause of his death is not yet available, but according to Rastafarian matriarch, Lorna Wainwright, he will be sadly missed.
“Georgie was always a humble man who wanted to hear positive music, and we will mourn him in dignity. He lived well and we will always honour him,” said Wainwright.
