King Tubby (dub/reggae producer Osbourne Ruddock)

~ Person

Legal name: Osbourne Ruddock


Osbourne Ruddock, (28 January 1941 – 6 February 1989) better known as King Tubby, was a Jamaican electronics and sound engineer, known primarily for his influence on the development of dub in the 1960s and 1970s.
