Condolences to the Olliviere family and to members of the Steelband Movement on the departure of one of the Movements early prominent pan-players. Most persons knew Rudolph Olliviere by this appropriate nick-name "Fisheye". No mention was made of his brother Hamil in the Death Announcement. I do recall that he had migrated to the USA many years ago. Is Hamil still with us ?
88 Charlotte Street is my place of birth, I as a youth visited every yard on charlotte street, I am sadden in hearing of the news that Mr. Rudolph "fisheye" Ollivierre has passed away, my condolences and prayers are with the Ollivierre's. I remembered going up to 104 charlotte street/hellyard, and playing with Bunny, monkeyman, barry and others my age.Sometimes we had a float and saltfish from Miss. Popo as she sold her fried foods. Looking up to Fisheye/Rudy and his jokes, Also in Hamel yard where all stars was located for a while, there was so much pan music, I had to be involved with pan. Well fisheye was a co-inventor of the Tenor pan, I believed so, he had a grapefruit can with 2 or 3 notes playing nursery rhymes..He showed me to play the bass,when my grandmother was not around, yes on carnival days he was a good bassman, fleets in.
Yes..he will be truly missed byour age group.May his soul rest in peace.
I saw a Death Announcement in todays Newspapers for Rudolph Ollivierre. No mention is made of "Fisheye" the nickname-name by which most persons 70 years and over will know him. As a youth, I am now aged 78 years, together with some other pals from Belmont would go down to Piccadilly Street to listen to "Hell Yard " Steelband which was beating pan on the Bank across the Dry River in the back of "Hell Yard " , we knew of the popular "Fisheye" who was beating the "First Pan" before we knew his name was Rudolph Ollivierre.
We got to know of the presence Neville Jules in "Hell Yard" Steelband much later. At that time the entrance to "Hell Yard" was at 102 Charlotte Street opposite to Crown Bakery and not at Duke Street as popularly believed..
Condolences to the Ollivierre Family and to the Steelband Fraternity on the passing of "Fisheye". He was a memorable character to me. Ian Lambie
My Condolences to the Ollivierre family.I did not know Fisheye personally, but as a former leader of All Stars, I certainly heard a lot about his early involvement with the band. May he rest in peace.
My Condolence to the family and friends
May he R.I.P.
Condolences to the Ollivierre family. I never saw "Fisheye" in person. I heard of his involvement with All Stars.
I do have a video with him in a local movie. One of his lines was, "yuh know how much money was a $100.00 fine in them days"
My heartfelt condolences to the family of Rudolph "Fisheye" Ollivierre and the significant and historical role he played in the steelband movement of Trinidad & Tobago, HOME OF THE STEELPAN.
