Midnight Raver welcomes Glen Lockley!

The MIDNIGHT RAVER BLOG is pleased to announce the recent addition of GLEN LOCKLEY as a contributing editor.
GLEN LOCKLEY has been collecting roots reggae, in particular Wailers music and memorabilia, since 1980, and has amassed a large and varied archive. In 1994, after meeting up with Roger Steffens in Amsterdam, he became founder, editor and main writer of Distant Drums, a rootzine dedicated to preserving and honouring the unique legacy of Bob Marley and the whole Wailers family. Assisted by a number of other like-minded fans, including Roger himself, the van Arnhem brothers, Wayne Auchaybur, Gael Doyen and Franco Mancini, twelve issues of the magazine were published, each packed full of information and articles about The Wailers.
The decision to end production of the magazine, which had been a major part of his life for over a decade, was difficult and done with a heavy heart. However, it gave him the opportunity to concentrate his efforts on adding to his collection and contribute to a number of projects, the most recent being Kevin McDonald’s Marley biopic. He also acts as former Wailers’ lead guitarist and vocalist Junior Marvin’s UK assistant and has compiled the most complete database of Junior’s work.
Glen is delighted to have the opportunity to share back-issues of Distant Drums with our readers, and will be contributing articles covering a wide range of Wailers-related subjects to our website.
With the addition of GLEN LOCKLEY, the MIDNIGHT RAVER BLOG is one of the most definitive, well-researched, and credible web sites with regard to Bob Marley and the Wailers, Peter Tosh, and reggae roots and culture.
