I feel proud of Robert Greenidge playing a farewell song for Gerald Logie. Most people have not realized that Trinidad Tripoli Steel band made inroads as a pioneer for steel bands in United States of America and Canada. I remember in the early days in Los Angeles when Robert Greenidge came to our Hotel where we were staying an jammed with Harold and Kenrick Headley. It was an evening to remember. Condoences to the Logie family from Scratcher-man Courtney Leiba

A most fitting tribute to a great steelpan pioneer . You have made mr . Newton ( the hymn writer ) proud as he looks down .

The Incredibly gifted virtuoso creates his magic before a spellbound audience, a send off fit for royalty was witnessed by all in attendance. Thank you Robert 'Maestro' Greenidge for the blessing, Gerald must have heard you from Heaven last nite.
