Winston Rodney [vínston rôdnej] alias Burning Spear [b'ŕniŋ spír], jamajški pevec roots rock reggaeja, glasbenik in glasbeni producent, * 1. marec, 1948, Saint Ann's Bay, okrožje Saint Ann, Jamajka.

Življenje[uredi | uredi kodo]

Burning Spear se je rodil v majhni ribiški vasi St. Ann's Bay ob severni obali otoka v okrožju Saint Ann (kakor Bob Marley in Marcus Mosiah Garvey), kjer je še vedno njegov dom. Njegovi konjički so nogomet, plavanje, tek in glasba. Na začetku njegove glasbene poti mu je neposredno pomagal Bob Marley.

Oh, I stand strong inna Babylon,
His Majesty, big Marcus Garvey
His Majesty, big Martin Luther King
I am the Master of my Home
I am the Captain of my Soul
I will watch my footsteps, I will watch them - inna Babylon,
Watch your back inna Babylon,
Check your move inna Babylon
Nice and easy
Trdno stojim v babilonskem svetu
Njegovo veličanstvo, veliki Marcus Garvey
Njegovo veličanstvo, veliki Marcus Garvey
Sem gospodar svojega doma
Svoji duši sem vodja sam
Pazil bom na svoje korake, pazil bom na njih - v Babilonu
Pazite na svoj hrbet v babilonskem svetu
Preverite svoj korak v babilonskem svetu
Lepo in počasi
— Burning Spear, I Stand Strong, * The World Should Know, 1993

Burning Spear je eden od najbolj neomajnih zagovornikov samoodločnosti in samozaupanja, ki ga je za vse afriške potomce razširjal Marcus Mosiah Garvey.

Leta 1987 je Burning Spear nastopil tudi v Hali Tivoli v Ljubljani, leto kasneje pa je imel koncert v Dvorani Zenith v Parizu, ki je razpoložljiv na nosilcih zvoka in videa.

Na svojem albumu * Appointment With His Majesty iz leta 1997 je posvetil pesem Play Jerry glasbeniku in kitaristu skupine Grateful Dead Jerryju Garcii, ki je preminil dve leti prej.

Leta 2002 sta Burning Spear in njegova žena Sonia Rodney, ki je producirala veliko njegovih plošč, ustanovila glasbeno založbo Burning Spear Records. Drugače pa je večino svojih plošč produciral sam.

Burning Spear se zavzema za poštenost, mir in ljubezen, kar je povezano z njegovimi verskimi in političnimi sporočili rastafarijanstva in črne enotnosti.

Navedki[uredi | uredi kodo]

 »Nikoli nisem bil srečnejši, ko mi je Winston »Burning Spear« Rodney med snemanjem na Brentford Roadu rekel 'Še vedno ne razumem sir D', in stresal z glavo, 'Zakaj me imajo ljudje tako radi?' Zato ker si tako odličen izvajalec in zelo toplo človeško bitje, sem mu odvrnil.«
Clement Seymour »Sir Coxsone« Dodd
 »Burning Spear se ne boji sprememb v glasbi. To rečem zaradi tega, ker imam opravka z nečim popolnoma drugim kakor s tistim s čimer se ta čas ukvarjajo ljudje. Razumete?«
— Douglas Heselgrave v uvodu zapisa Naša glasba: Preteklost, sedanjost in prihodnost z Burning Spearom, The Music Box, Vol. 12, #11 [1]
