Jimmy Cliff is one of the many artists that knew and loved Toots Hibbert. He talked about his late friend with “Rolling Stone” magazine.
“People don’t know how creative he is. He’d start talking about something, then he’d take up a guitar and put [the song] down right away. That was one of the great things I’ll always remember about him, how creative he was.”
“His new album [“Got to Be Tough”]. I love his new album! His new album is one of the best he’s done. He just leaved us with that great album, and gone! It’s one of his best definitely, without a doubt. He had some great songs prior to this, but it took him so long to make this new album. But he left us with something great.”
