Died: Aug, 1987
Major Worries (born Wayne Jones) was another victim of the gun culture that plagued the Jamaican music industry. The DJ’s ‘drunken master’ style on his debut, ‘Topa’ led to a series of hits
which leaves this writer believing he could have enjoyed a long and fruitful career. Predestined to become a major deejay name in the digital age Major Worries’ life and career were tragically cut off in their prime. As many of his predecessors, this young talent had built his reputation when working for several sound systems before he really made his mark with the original and amusing ‘Babylon Boops’, a tune he cut for King Jammy’s. Major Worries was shot and killed by a security guard in Spanish Town in August in 1987. He was a
major influence to Shabba Ranks and
still is to many DJ’s of today.
