Leroy Sibbles Interview at Uppsala Reggae Festival 2011 – United Reggae magazine

Leroy Sibbles is a bonafide legend in the reggae industry with almost 50 years in the business and countless immortal bass lines and riddims with his name on them. United Reggae met him after a performance by The Heptones at Uppsala Reggae Festival.

It’s a few minutes past 1 o’clock in the morning and I’m sitting in the chilly and damp press tent waiting to interview Leroy Sibbles, front man and lead singer in The Heptones.

The clock keeps ticking and suddenly me, two photographers and another reporter are asked to relocate to a warmer setting.

It turns out an early August night in Sweden is too cold for Leroy Sibbles and he is freezing at the moment. Instead of meeting in the press tent outside we are asked to interview him in a container where Uppsala Reggae Festival’s founder and promoter Yared Tekeste usually has his office.

This is the second time The Heptones perform at the festival.
