Cliff a man who has been singing since his was 14, over 50 years strong, is a true icon who strangely enough is more recognized outside of Jamaica for his talents than in his homeland. Lets start the tribute at the memorable VW commercial, which y'all have already seen but did you know there was an accompanying video 'Cmon get happy"
Jimmy Cliff released 2 albums last year, the 5 song EP Sacred Fire which features covers of Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" then his Grammy award winning album "Rebirth"
produced by Tim Armstrong of Rancid which includes cover versions of The Clash's "Guns of Brixton" (the lyric of which refers to Cliff's role in The Harder They Come) and Joe Higgs' "World Upside Down".....his talent appears boundless.
