The British reggae icon's story will come out on March 2nd.
The UK reggae icon, 65, says he was reluctant to publish a book about his life, but adds: "I was frequently told by artists that I needed to 'write it down,' not just for myself but for the music, to document the journey and the sounds we've come to love."
"So here I am at the sprightly age of 65 telling my story," he says. "I've always been a champion for the artists and the music, but it was never really about my journey. However, over the years, my story has entwined with reggae as has my relationship with the culture and people of Jamaica."
A series of four events will celebrate the book's release, taking place in London, Bristol, Liverpool and Glasgow. The first, happening on March 3rd at Mick's Garage in London, will be hosted by Gilles Peterson, with a Q&A followed by DJ sets from Rodigan and Soul II Soul's Jazzie B.
