R.I.P.: Bunny Rugs
William Clarke, the husky-voiced lead singer of the long-running reggae band Third World, died on Sunday February 2, 2014.
Known as "Bunny Rugs", Clarke joined Third World in 1976, after working with Lee "Scratch" Perry and the band Inner Circle in Jamaica. He appeared on all of Third World's records aside from their debut. In 1977, Third World's popular 96 Degrees In The Shade album was released through Island Records. Their biggest hit came in 1978, with a take on the O'Jays' "Now That We Found Love". They also had a hit in 1982 with the Stevie Wonder collaboration "Try Jah Love". Clarke played with Third World until his death. MORE HERE & HERE
