R.I.P. Lucky Dube

Lucky Philip Dube (August 3, 1964 – October 18, 2007) was a South African reggae musician. He recorded 22 albums in Zulu, English and Afrikaans in a 25-year period and was South Africa's biggest selling reggae artist. On October 18, 2007, Lucky Dube was killed in the Johannesburg suburb of Rosettenville shortly after dropping two of his seven children off at their uncle’s house. Police reports suggest he was shot dead by carjackers. He is survived by his wife, Zanele, and his seven children. Five men have been arrested in connection with the murder.

This is what Lucky Dube said in an interview last April:
"When it comes to being Rasta, I say if 'Rasta' means smoking ganja and . . . going around shouting 'Jah Rastafari!', then I am not Rasta. But if it means fighting for justice, fighting for togetherness, the oneness, the love and brotherhood, then yes, I am Rasta."

Rest In Peace.

Georg Franz Danzer (b. October 7, 1946, Vienna - d. June 21, 2007, Asperhofen, Lower Austria) was an Austrian singer-songwriter.

Danzer was successful as a solo artist, but also in the group Austria3, along with Wolfgang Ambros and Rainhard Fendrich. Besides his music, he translated two books from Spanish to German, and was strongly involved in highlighting social inequalities, opposing racism and any form of social discrimination, and the lifestyle of the bourgeoisie for all his life. Danzer was romantic, funny, socially engaged - and often a misfit. His legacy includes some 400 songs.
