Jamaica: Build Statue For Underrated Toots – Herbie Miller

A former manager of the late Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert is lobbying for a statue of the late reggae legend to be erected in May Pen, Clarendon, from where he hails.

Herbie Miller, who knew the reggae icon from the early 1970s, ranks Toots among the pantheon of music’s all-time greats.

“When you look at authenticity, Toots is the man,” said Miller, a music historian.

“… Others are good, they are all good, but when you talking about solid and whose contributions are indelible to the world, I mean in every crevice of the world, Toots is one of them,” he said.

Hibbert, 77, passed away in hospital on Friday, September 11, after being placed in a medically induced coma while undergoing treatment for respiratory complications.
