“I can’t imagine you not being around anymore.” A Somerset-based musician has paid an emotional tribute to music legend Johnny Nash, who passed away on October 6.
Nash, who achieved worldwide fame for his hit “I Can See Clearly Now”, died at home due to natural causes, aged 80.
Born in Houston, Nash’s 1972 hit sold more than one million copies around the world. And one man who was always there was John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick, who worked with Nash throughout the 1970’s, even sharing a house with the star.
The pair first worked together in Stockholm, Sweden, but then relocated to London in 1971. While in London, the pair had another housemate, a little-known Jamaican musician, called Bob Marley.
“Thank you for starting and giving me a fabulous career in music. And thank you for all of the Good Times in my life”, Bundrick said.
