Link to interview with director of classic reggae film Rockers, submitted by Steve Heilig, "All Over the Map" columnist

Steve notes: In my final column for The Beat, I noted the arrival on DVD of Rockers, the classic 1970s film by Theodoros Bafaloukos.  I’ve never seen an interview or anything else by/about him until this new interview in VICE magazine.  It’s worth reading, and has great photos from that time in Jamaica as well.

  1. This is not to be construed as an endorsement of the Vice magazine website, which appears to be mainly focused on sensationalistic, tasteless commentary and revolting video/photos appealing to a lost generation of 20-something dunderheads. I am sure Steve does not read it regularly (do you Steve?). I suggest you read and enjoy the interview, buy the Rockers dvd, and close the page.

  2. JAh blessings and love. It broke my heart to hear bout the loss of the beat. Jah bless all at, the beat thank all of you for all you,ve done. Forward ever backward never! One love ras mark t
