Born 17th December 1950
Died 17th April 1987
Barrett found fame as the drummer for Bob Marley’s Wailers. On 17 April 1987, just as Carlton arrived at his Kingston home and walked across his yard, a gunman stepped up behind him and shot him twice in the head. He was dead on arrival at a Kingston hospital at age 36. Although his wife was convicted of conspiracy and sentenced to one year imprisonment, Barrett’s killer has never been found.
