Legendary reggae singer Bunny Wailer and founding member of The Wailers that included Bob Marley and Peter Tosh dies aged 73 in Kingston, Jamaica. According to Wailer’s manager, Maxine Stowe, the iconic Reggae crooner died on Tuesday at the Medical Associates Hospital in Jamaica.

Wailer, born Neville Livingstone — before adopting his famous moniker, he was also known as Bunny Livingstone — was a member of the original Wailers trio with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.

Born April 10th, 1947, in the Nine Mile district of Jamaica’s St. Ann Parish, Livingstone was a friend of Marley from a young age; following the death of Marley’s father, Norval, in 1955, Marley’s mother, Cedella, lived with Livingstone’s father, Thaddeus, in Trench Town, making Bunny and Bob near-stepbrothers.
