    "Footsteps" has passed away

    Sad news Islandmix. Wayne Rodriguez, the Trinidad singer who won Road March with "Footsteps" when he was a member of Xtatik has passed away.

    It is reported that he took his life by hanging sometime last night/this morning.

    The TNT entertainment industry is in mourning and the radio stations are playing tributes of Wayne's music, Xtatik's music and past Road Marches. It is very sad...

    Goodbye Wayne..."stamp it harder, make footsteps in heaven..."

    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Sep-08-01 AT 11:42 AM (EST)[/font][p]oh my gosh...I can't believe dat news. :-( It is very disheartneing when we see our people cannot seem to deal with the world anymore and decide to take their own life. He will be greatly missed because despite footsteps...de man could sing good kaiso. Many might not remember songs like "Set My Music Free","Calypso Nice",and even his pan tune this year.
    He will be missed...

    Rest in peace Wayne and I hope you find the peacefulness and happiness you were looking for here....

    It is truly sad to know of someone who takes his/her own life. My heart goes out to the Rodriguez family. :-(

    I was searching for a newspaper article myself in the Guardian or Express and can't find it.

    This is very sad to hear. I can't imagine what he was going through to make him do such a thing. Condolences to his family, friends and the soca music community.

    Wayne will be greatly missed by his family, friends and fans.

    Let's all see if we as a caribbean community can keep Wayne's memory present with us and not forget about him, he was more than just Footsteps to those of us who knew him.

    I must say I am some what disappointed by the fact there have only been a small hand full of posts reguarding Wayne's passing, I know he worth more than a few post, lets leave him some love.

    RIP
    Waynie

    I'll NEVER forget you.
