Famed Jamaican reggae producer Harry Johnson dies
KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Harry Johnson, a Jamaican musician and reggae producer whose studio was a popular hangout for artists including Bob Marley and Mick Jagger, has died. He was 67.
Daughter Tara Johnson said Friday that her father died at a hospital in western Jamaica on Wednesday after a long battle with diabetes.
Johnson was best known as Harry J., and he had several big hits in the late 1960s and early 70s including "The Liquidator," a reggae instrumental recorded by his band, Harry J Allstars. The song is often played before soccer matches in the United Kingdom and its opening guitar riff inspired the classic soul song, "I'll Take You There," by the Staples Singers.
Johnson is survived by four children and three grandchildren.
