Last Night: Michael Rose at The Independent
Rose is no stranger to the stage -- his original band, Black Uhuru, won the first Grammy for reggae in 1985 for their album, Anthem. He has performed with all the reggae greats, from the Wailers to Gregory Isaacs. Last night Rose stuck mostly to his most popular songs, including some from his latest album, Great Expectations. But he also managed to slip in the mandatory Michael Jackson tribute at one point: "The girl is mine," he sang. "The doggone girl is mine."
Turns out that Michael Jackson sounds really good as reggae. Who knew?
