Reggae Musician. He was a member of the musical group, 'Musical Youth.' The band was formed at Duddleston Manor School in Birmingham, England, in 1981, By Patrick, Michael Grant, Junior Waite, Dennis Seaton, and at times featured, Frederick Waite. In 1981 they signed with the MCA Record label, and in 1982 they relesed there first and only hit. The pro-marijuana song called, "Pass The Dutchie" was based on "Pass The Kouchie" by 'The Mighty Diamonds.' The song sold over 4 million copies, but none of there future releases would gain as much attention as this one had. They went onto sing backup for Donna Summers until the career began to sour, eventually leading to the disbanding of the band in 1985. In 1993 the band tried a reunion but due to Patrick's untimely death of natural causes in 1993, the plans never went thru. There other recordings include "Children Of Zion," "Rockers," "Youth Of Today," "Sixteen," "Yard Stylee," "Air Taxi," "Blind Boy," "Mash It The Youth Man, Mash It," "Young Generation," "Mirror Mirror," "Heartbreaker," "Never Gonna Give You Up," "Schoolgirl," "Shanty Town," "She's Trouble," "Watcha Talking 'Bout," "Incommunicado," "No Strings," and "Tell Me Why." (bio by: K)
