Big Ship sends condolences to family of Gregory Isaacs


As tributes pour in for the late Gregory Isaacs, the captain of the Big Ship, veteran singer Freddy McGregor, has sent condolences to the family of the late reggae superstar.

In an interview with Irie FM’s Ron Muschette this morning, Freddy said he was sad to hear about the passing of Gregory.

“I saw Gregory two weeks ago in London and he was in high spirits. He made us laugh and despite him being sick we shared a good time. The Big Ship family regrets his passing,” he said.

Gregory Isaacs reportedly passed away this morning in England from cancer which had spread over his entire body.

Gregory is best known for the song Night Nurse and has a rich, extensive catalogue of reggae hits. Reports are that his body will be flown back to Jamaica by the end of this week and a committee has been established by the government and the family to handle funeral arrangements for the reggae legend.
