Books Info:

Shaggy: Dogamuffin Style free pdf His birthname, Orville Richard Burrell, has long receded into the backdrop, but Shaggy's reggae roots still ring clearly in the rhythms of his multi-platinum selling albums. "Shaggy: Dogamuffin Style" recounts the rise of 'Mr. Boombastic' to musical superstardom, from his childhood in Kingston, Jamaica, and teen years in Flatbush, Brooklyn, to his days in the studio and as a marine serving in the Gulf War. This intimate exploration of Shaggy's life would be incomplete without an investigation into the music that formed him, and author Micah Locilento is meticulous in providing a fascinating introduction to the rich history of reggae. Taking into account the influence of Bob Marley, sound system 'deejays' and the lively culture of the Jamaican dancehall, Locilento presents a thorough portrait of the music that Shaggy brought to the ears of the masses.
