Kim Johnson " probes the ties between the steelband movement and the PNM and its leader, Eric Williams, and the development of what he calls "pan politics" (of which he considers George Goddard the master)." Trinidad Express.

Thanks for honoring George "Sonny" Goddard's legacy, Kim. He was "the master"; even Kitch knew that.

(See: http://www.triniview.com/Brother-Valentino/07070515.html)

That is why I call him (George) the "Malcolm X of the Steelband Movement"! BTW - Wednesday (Jan 18), marked the 24th anniversary of the passing of this national hero. May he continue to Rise In Peace! ALL PANISTS  are better off for his contributions!
