Don Drummond

Real Name:
Don Drummond
Profile:
Jamaican trombonist, born 12 March 1932, in Kingston, Jamacia - died 6 May 1969, in Kingston, Jamaica (presumed suicide). Drummond attended the famed Alpha Boys School in Kingston.

In 1964 Don Drummond was a founding member of the Skatalites.
In the Fall of 1965, Don Drummond's composition, "Man In The Street", enters the Top 10 in the UK. Trombonist Drummond is not only the Skatalites busiest composer, but the most prolific in all of Ska, with at least 200 tunes to his name by 1965. Later, in 1967, his adaptation of "The Guns of Navarone" netted Drummond another top 10 UK hit.
His peers and colleagues felt that Drummond was one of the top trombonists in the world.

His genius was only dimmed by his fragile mental condition. In January 1965, he killed his girlfriend, Anita 'Marguerita' Mahfood. He is later convicted and remanded to the Bellevue Asylum, where he died in 1969, aged only 37.
