Wilson. Spector. Perry?
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER “Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry…is often hailed as Jamaica's equivalent to Phil Spector or Brian Wilson as a genius-level record producer, songwriter and performer.”
"Everything happens because of a reason," Perry declared. "I fell on a ring that has the Jewish symbol of eight candles. I think somebody was telling me to remove that. This job I have, it's a special job. I make special music. People want to know where we're going next. I am the creator; people follow me. I have to be the doctor, the leader, to show them where they're going in their songs. That keeps me going. I can't think about retiring for a while, because the music needs me."
"My music is not about making quick money and telling man to shoot the other man, sex and drugs and all those things. It is really sad when nobody can have respect for the other muffins. You need a spiritual teacher, a lion and judge to have consciousness about what men are doing. You have to think as God, since God made man in his own image. If you think you're a devil, then you're manifesting like a devil. I am the original angel Gabriel, that God sent down to save the people. And also to get all the American dollars and English pounds and Euros.”
