Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Reggae legend Neville Livingston, known as Bunny Wailer has been hospitalized.
The 73-year-old was admitted to a Kingston facility last Monday suffering from what his family has described as complications related to a stroke he suffered in October 2018, that affected the right side of his body.
Since the 2018 stroke, the ailing artiste has been to Cuba for treatment and has continued his rehabilitation in Jamaica.
His manager, Maxine Stowe told local media, “He will be released once he’s stabilized, which includes some amount of rehab.”
She also alluded to the fact that Wailer is grieving the disappearance of his life partner, Jean Watt, on May 23. The desperate search for her continues.
Stowe said, “[Bunny Wailer] has battened down and overcome many sentences in his personal and creative life, and we hope that his unique spiritual, creative, and personal contribution to humanity stands predominant in these choppy waters.”
Bunny Wailer formed The Wailers along with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.
His last appearance on stage was back in February when he accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association.
