The great Eddy Grant is best remembered for his music especially the early 1980’s hit “I Dont Wanna Dance”. He has contributed his music to many movies and appeared as an actor twice including “Mustard Bath” in 1993. He was born in 1948 in British Guiana. Grant had his first number one hit in 1968, when he was the lead guitarist and main songwriter of the group The Equals, with his self-penned song “Baby Come Back“. The tune also topped the UK Singles Chart in 1994, when covered by Pato Banton featuring Robin and Ali Campbell of the reggae group UB40. Notably, he openly used his songwriting for political purposes, especially against the then-current apartheid regime of South Africa. The Clash recorded a version of “Police On My Back” for their Sandinista! set. (“Wikipedia)

About Liam Bluett
Anyone who knows me are aware that I am a bit of a movie buff. Over the past few years I have been collecting signed photographs of my favourite actors. Perhaps I have your favourite actor in my collection. Just send me an e-mail with the actor’s name and comments on why you admire his/her work and if I have a photograph in the collection I will put it on the blog for you.
