     Waite, Patrick (1969-18th February 1993)

    He was born a singer/songwriter and bass player born in Birmingham, England.  He was the son of Frederick Waite, who was previously a member of The Techniques and his father formed the band Musical Youth in 1979.  He and his brother Freddie, as well as Michael Grant and Kelvin Grant formed the group with Frederick Waite, initially singing lead vocals, to be replaced by Dennis Seaton.  They saw success when "Pass the Dutchie" became a No.1 hit and was successful worldwide.  The band split up in 1985 when Dennis Seaton left to pursue a solo career.  He became involved in juvenile crime and in 1993 he died from a heredity heart condition while still in his early 20s.
