Meeting Jimmy Cliff

After watching a gracious Jimmy Cliff accept his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he gave the most stunning, soulful, and moving performance of “Many Rivers to Cross.” I’m a big fan of reggae and Jimmy is pretty much responsible for getting the genre of music out of Jamaica–and into our hearts and ears. Not to mention our bottoms…reggae has such a great groove. All day I’ve been singing, “You can get it if you really want, but you must try, try and try, until you succeed at last.” So wow, when I tried and tried…look what happened! He’s Red, Green, and Gold through and through. Dig them glasses, Jimmy.
