Big Sugar Bassist Garry Lowe Passes at 65

Bassist for the Canadian rock band, Big Sugar, passed away early saturday morning at the age of 65. Lowe's death followed a private 2 year long battle with cancer.

Big Sugar released a statement saying Lowe "was long heralded and admired for not only his extensive musical talents, especially with Gordie Johnson and Big Sugar, but also for his infectious energies of love, humanity, humour and kindness."

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Lowe moved to Canada in 1976 when he was 22 and began playing bass with reggae legend Jackie Mittoo. He joined Big Sugar in 1994, touring and recording with the band.

"We lost our dear brother and sweet friend Garry this morning," Johnson says in the statement. "He was my greatest musical collaborator, our wisest elder. We were blessed to be on life's journey together."
