The Celebrity Link- UNSUNG HEROES--TYRONE TAYLOR--CONTROVERSIAL BUT TALENTED
The Entertainment Celebrity Link


Tyrone Taylor, the reggae singer whose 1983 song "Cottage In Negril" is considered a classic, died on Saturday, December 1st 2007. Producer Norman 'Bull Puss' Bryan, a close friend of Taylor's, said the singer died from prostate cancer in Kingston, Jamaica. The St. Elizabeth-born Taylor, who was 50 years old, had fallen on hard times. He suffered two strokes in recent years and spoke openly of a substance abuse problem that derailed a promising career.

TYRONE TAYLOR... SINGER WITH A GOLDEN SWEET VOICE.

Tyrone Taylor was born in Negril, Jamaica, in 1957. He first ventured in the studio at the tender age of 12 when he recorded "Delilah" for producer Joe Gibbs. The song surfaced in the UK on the flipside of Dennis Walks' hit "Having A Party", but being disappointed with the final result of his first recording Taylor drifted among some of Jamaica's top session men, learning to play a number of instruments. One of his most influential benefactors was Willie Lindo who encouraged him to persevere with a career in the music business.

Taylor went on to record with a number of Jamaica's leading producers, notably with Winston "Niney The Observer" Holness and Jack Ruby, and was signed to Bob Marley's Tuff Gong enterprise. The singer with the golden sweet voice always seemed to do his best work under the direction of Niney the Observer. For him he recorded two Jamaican hits, "Just A Feeling" and "Sufferation", the latter featuring a special King Tubby mix.
