New Memoir by
Copeland Forbes was there and saw it all…
He is a legend in world of Reggae and Jamaican music industry and culture.
In 2017, he received one of the highest commendations given out by the Jamaican government and people,
The Order of Distinction.
Copeland in his storied life and career was dealing and working with Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, the Wailers, Dennis Brown, Jimmy Cliff, Toots & Maytals, Gregory Issacs, The Rolling Stones,
Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Chris Blackwell,
Don Taylor, Richard Branson, Don King,
Mark Zuckerberg, and virtually every pivotal artist and player in the history of Reggae and the Jamaican music industry….much of it filled with high drama, high risks, and a lot of conflict….tales that need to be told, and constitute important history.
There are only a few on this earth with this level of knowledge and experiences in the world of
Reggae and Jamaican culture.
The book was 10 years in the making with
Copeland and his collaborator, Clyde McKenzie. Downsound Books, formed by Joseph Bogdanovich and Clyde McKenzie, has teamed up with Rare Bird out of Los Angeles to bring this important memoir to the world.
