Reggae musician Dalton Browne who suffered a massive heart attack two weeks ago has died while recovering from quadruple bypass heart surgery.
Browne’s death has been confirmed by numerous people with the Reggae Music industry as well as his brother, keyboardist and reggae music producer Cleveland “Clevie” Browne.
“I got the call after three this evening. It rough. It rough,” Browne told a Jamaican news outlet.
“His three children from New York are here and that had given him a lift in spirits. He was talking and was responsive,” Browne continued.
A member of the 12 Tribes of Israel, Dalton Browne was the second of five Browne brothers, all of whom are musicians. His brother Cleveland “Clevie” Browne was a member of the famous reggae producing duo, Steely and Clevie.
They were once known as The Browne Bunch which formed during the early 1970s.
Dalton, a member of the 12 Tribes of Israel, is long-time musical director for Freddie McGregor’s band.
He played on most of McGregor’s hit songs including Big Ship, Push Come to Shove and Prophecy.
