Some right, some wrong Steve8e.

Matt P- it's good but not right.

Clues-

That Godfather of Reggae isn't a reggae performer.

Gangster Of Hiphop- the artist in question refered to himself as such in a track of that name.

The Prince Of Darkness- again, the artist in question did a track called that name.

The Stepping Razor isn't John Holt. It's a much more gutsy, rude boy type reggae performer. A very famous one though.

Amorphous Androgynous is not so much a nickname as a pseudonym.

The Iceman is a blues guy.

Mr. Rocksteady- now, Ken Boothe did a track of that name, so you get a half point (like anyone's counting). But, there's another name I'm after.

It's a jazz guy. "Prez" in fact did many a classic track with another name on there, "Lady Day".

"Mr Lucky" is (was) John Lee Hooker, and I think "The Iceman" is Albert Collins.

Booyaka Andy C, absolutely rinsing.

Mitch- spot on. Pour yourself a whisky sour.

Steve8e- that wasn't the one I was looking for.

Correct Leo. Taking it to the next level, there.

2 out of 4 ain't bad Steve8e.

Clues-

The King Of Reggae is, you know, obvious. The big one. The Prince of Reggae less so, but he's smooth, he's slick, and his middle name's a porno flick.

The Godfather Of Reggae is a the model for all rocksteady falsetto harmonies. He produced The Techniques once, and he's also known as the Black Dylan.
