People Funny Boy : The Genius of Lee 'Scratch' Perry Paperback
by David Katz
Arguably the most influential force in Jamaican music, Lee Perry brought Bob Marley to international stardom and has since collaborated with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, The Clash and The Beastie Boys.
The book delves behind the myth of Perry to give a fuller examination of his life and work through extensive interviews with family members, fellow artists, friends, lovers, enemies, as well as the man himself to present a complex portrait of a unique soul driven by unseen spiritual forces.
This revised edition contains new information on Perry's recent years, including his Grammy Award and cessation of herb smoking.
The text has been thoroughly revised, making the new edition a more factually accurate and greatly improved read.
