Few men knew it better. "The Legend" as he is called, is shown below in this rare photo on the night Joe first came together with Lucky Dube who was beginning his first world tour. It was at "The Channel" dance hall, in Boston. Lucky was the headliner, scheduled to appear last on the venue with Joe opening for him. Prior to the show, Lucky had been reasoning with Kaliflowa when the subject of Joe arose. Lucky asked Kali to introduce him to Joe, as they had never met. Shortly after the above photo was taken, Lucky announced, much to the chagrin of the sponsoring record company, that "Joe would always be the headliner" and that he, Lucky, would "open" for Joe. That threw the vibes into overdrive. Lucky knew the order of things better than his record company did. Never was there a show like the one that night. Nuf respect to Brother Lucky!

Joe Higgs is one of the most respected musicians in reggae history. His mark will forever be indelible!
