Judge Dread is the stage name of Alexander Minto Hughes, one of the first influential white reggae artists. Often, and sadly, dismissed as a pure novelty act, Judge Dread had 11 #1 hit singles in the UK, and was the first white reggae singer to have a #1 hit in Jamaica. Judge Dread was famous for nearly ridiculously innuendo-laden lyrics. Hughes died on 13 March 1998, stepping off stage at a concert in Canterbury. His last words were: "Let's hear it for the band!"
