Farewell to the Cool Ruler

GREGORY ISAACS was a reggae singer so smooth his nickname, "COOL RULER" went unchallenged.
When I heard that Isaacs had lost a battle with cancer yesterday, age 59, I quickly dialed up his name on my iPod.

I have 22 Isaacs songs on there. I decided to listen to as many as possible in tribute, so the girls and I heard Isaacs crooning such classics as "Night Nurse," "Loving Pauper" and "Love is Overdue" while driving to and from last night's DUBUQUE HALLOWEEN PARADE.

Isaacs was a wonderful vocalist, who would have starred in soul music had he been born in the States.

The Cool Ruler will be missed.
