This week, music lovers everywhere were rocked by the sad news of the death of Toots Hibbert from Toots & The Maytals, best remembered for their smash hit “54-46 Was My Number”, a song written by Toots about the time he spent in prison after being arrested for possession of marijuana. Toots was 73. Rest in eternal peace.
