“He wasn’t really a studio drummer, but he played with Til Shiloh band until Buju Banton was incarcerated. He was really good at what he did. He played very close to the record as possible. He was always on tempo and the band could really rely on him to give off that strong beat,” said Germain.

Germain, who said he has known Shirley for over two decades, said the drummer was extremely fun-loving and committed to his craft.
