Happy Birthday Robbie Shakespeare


Robert "Robbie" Shakespeare is one half of the brilliant, and hugely successful Sly and Robbie (Sly is Lowell "Sly" Dunbar) and today is the birthday of a man who alongside his partner has reportedly played or produced on more than 200,000 recordings since the 1970's.

 Sly and Robbie The Masters of Riddim

They have changed the face of Reggae music a number of times during the years and have appeared alongside many of the best Jamaican Reggae Artists including The Mighty Diamonds, Bunny Wailer, Prince Far I, Peter Tosh, Sugar Minott, Black Uhuru, Culture, Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Jimmy Cliff and Gregory Issacs to name but a few. They have also had the opportunity to play alongside musicians from spheres of music other than Reggae, and that list includes Ian Dury, The Fugees, Marianne Faithful, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, No Doubt, Joe Cocker and Suggs to name but a few.
