Ska Nation Radio - Beefy's Tribute to Greg Lee [Ep 515]

Season 1 | Episode 515

We lost the King of LA Ska, Mr Greg Lee last week.

I never met him, but I adored his music. He fronted the ska band that even the people who claimed they didn't like ska or the style of music, ended up falling in love with.

We've lost the Gentleman of the scene. His family have lost a husband, a father and an awesome man. Our thoughts go out to all of those people that have been touched by this man in some way.

This show features studio and a load of live tracks from Western Standard Time, Andres Cotter, The Interrupters and obviously Hepcat. I've thrown some interview grabs in across the show. I hope I've done the man some justice and shown him the love he surely deserves.

"He has touched the lives and hearts of so many people all around the world through music and travel. His songs with Hepcat helped so many of us in both joyous and even depressing times. He has inspired so many to create, dance, sing, and love. Myself included. His unique talents and presence will forever be unmatched. He is truly one-of-a-kind.

I will share more information as I am able and based on the wishes of his family.

I know you all will keep Gregory in your hearts and minds, play his songs, and raise your glass with respect and tip your brim…

No Worries, friends. No worries."
