Reggae Legend Bunny Wailer Dead at 73
Bunny Wailer — the reggae icon and founding member of the original Wailers trio with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh — has died in Jamaica.
Bunny, real name Neville Livingston, died Tuesday at the Medical Associates Hospital in Kingston … according to his manager, Maxine Stowe. His cause of death’s not been given, but he’d been dealing with serious medical issues since suffering his second stroke in 2020.
Born in Jamaica, Livingston befriended Marley at a young age and they’d go on to form the legendary reggae group with Tosh. Though Marley and Tosh were the primary singers and songwriters … Bunny was known for his incredible harmonies on their songs.
