Another MIDNIGHT RAVER exclusive from the archives of Peter van Arnhem.
On 18 October 2007, the Lucky Dube, one of reggae’s most beloved artists, was shot and killed during a carjacking in the Johannesburg suburb of Rosettenville shortly after dropping two of his seven children off at their uncle’s house. Five men were arrested in connection with the murder; three were tried and found guilty on 31 March 2009. The men were sentenced to life in prison.
Back in 1999 I interviewed Lucky Dube here in Groningen, NL shortly before his concert in De Oosterpoort. Part of the interview we edited in a Distant Drums (fanzine) leaflet, which we distributed at a Morgan Heritage concert in 2000.
