Today it was learned that longtime Jamaican vocalist and recording artist Junior Murvin has died. Known for his falsetto singing style on such famous tunes as Police and Thieves which was later covered by the Clash. Murvin worked very closely with Scratch and was one of his go to singers during the time of the Black Ark. He will be greatly missed but always remembered.
