Lee "Scratch" Perry

Lee "Scratch" Perry

Working under many names - as well as in many capacities: disc jockey, producer, record businessman, songwriter, singer - Lee Perry has been a guiding force in the development of reggae. In addition to his own trailblazing music, Lee Perry has produced hits for the Wailers, Junior Byles, Max Romeo, the Heptones, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Murvin, and the Clash. Known for his bizarre behavior and stream-of-consciousness interviews, Lee Perry often dons costumes and headdresses made of found objects such as feathers, toys, playing cards, and coins.
