NY Times obit for Ly Tong.

Rumba box and maraca player of mento group The Jolly Boys since 1956, Derrick 'Jonny' Henry (or Derrick "Johnny" Henry, or Henry Derrick, depending on what site you're looking at) died last month at the age of 79. The last surviving member of what is often considered their "original" line-up (though they date back to 1945 in some form or another), and, I suppose, the longest-serving Jolly Boy.

 

 

Here's a report of his funeral in the Jamaica Observer a couple of days ago:

https://www.jamaicaobserver.com/entertainment/jolly-boy-jonny-s-funeral-today_161526

 

Bandmate Joseph "Powda" Bennett, who died in 2014, got what would have been a qualifying obit for Derby Dead Pool purposes at the time, but no sign of that for Derrick. This would make him my second DDP pick this year to join the List of the Lost after The Floaters' Larry Cunningham. I like to think it's sort of an achievement in itself that I manage to repeatedly pick overly obscure people for a strict theme team of UK #1 hitmakers. (The Jolly Boys were part of the "Commonwealth Band", of "Gary Barlow and the Commonwealth Band – Sing" notoriety.)

Chances of burial in Highgate are negligible, then

 Two years ago I last checked out my blood pressure. It was 188/122 and my pulse was 93. (I'm not kidding)

Is this normal? Should I drink more booze?

if it is withdrawal you are experiencing you should not stop drinking at once but cut down gradually

Aye, much discussion on this in the away end as Stevenage easily defeated a sub-standard Carlisle United yesterday. He died suddenly. Like I said he was briefly ill a few years back but recovered pretty well and was actually talking to the supporters magazine recently - fairly chipper for such an oldie.

 

V-sad.

 

He was player manager of Carlisle aged 24, though he eventually transferred himself!
