RIP Bigs.. you will always be missed

Condolences to the  James family and to Trinidad All Stars . This is untimely and shocking news , it saddens me very much . Rest in Peace my brother . 

I live in the States, but i love Trinidad All Stars! I believe they took up the banner that Pan Am North stars passed to them. I remember a big fellow playing in the All Stars rhythm section, was that him who passed, or was it the big brother who waved the flag? In any event i, too, offer my humble condolences to his family...The role he played contributed greatly to the Greatness of All Stars!

The Flagman died some years ago, Biggs was a tenor player.


Was he the flgman for the band

On behalf of Desperadoes Steel Orchestra, Condolences to the family and friends of the late Alrick "Biggs" James.

Alrick was born in Desperelie Creasant off Laventille Road, but moved away at a young age. He was one of All Stars' top tenor panist, but moved into the percussionist section many years ago.   

The Executive and Members of the British Association of Steelbands send their condolences to the family and friends of Ulric 'Bigs' James and to the members of the Neil and Massy Trinidad All Stars. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

On behalf of my family, long standing supporters of Trinidad All Stars, I express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Ulric "Biggs" James, the All Stars Family and the Port Family on the passing of Biggs.  It was sad and shocking when I heard of his passing this morning, while in work on the Port.  He touched most of us at the Port Authority as well as supporters of All Stars.  I remembered when my son started playing with the band, he will come and tell me of his improvement and how good he is.  Biggs may God guide you safely as you move on to your new journey.... rest in eternal peace!!! Play One for Ulric James....
