I'm still recovering from when I found out that Trojan is an English record label.

On a par with when I discovered that Rodigan is a white bloke.

The music publisher I acted for - Sparta Florida - owned Alton Ellis' copyrights.
When he died I had to deal with all his family. He had 43 kids over his lifetime!!!
I gave up and told them all to sort it out amongst themselves
Thete were about 5 different women by his bedside when he was dying.

Mac - remember we went to see John Holt at that venue I can't remember near the Market. How long ago was that???
His minders wouldn't let me see him.
3 days later he came round my office in Soho to say hello.
I sent you a photo.

His grave is at the back of my mother in law's house

Better get his Wikipedia entry updated then - mention of "...father of more than twenty children..." seems conservative by comparison!

Over 20 kids claiming a right to a share I could have dealt with.
But 43 just put the tin lid on it.
