A cricketing genius, Garry Sobers excelled at all aspects of the game, and few would argue his claim as the finest all-round player in modern cricket. His exceptional Test batting average tells little about the manner in which he made the runs, his elegant yet powerful style marked by all the shots, but memorably his off-side play.
Deryck Lance Murray (born 20 May 1943) in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago is a former West Indies cricketer. A wicket keeper and right-handed batsman, Murray kept wicket to the West Indian fast bowling attacks of the 1970s (including Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Joel Garner and Colin Croft); his glove-work effected 189 Test dismissals and greatly enhanced the potency of the bowling attack.
The first human beatbox in the rap world, and still the best of all time, Doug E. Fresh amazed audiences with his note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects, and often large samples of hip-hop classics. Fresh was born Doug E. Davis in Barbados, and his first appearance came in 1983 on a single for Spotlight called "Pass the Budda," with Spoonie Gee and DJ Spivey. His introduction to most hip-hop fans, though, came one year later with his astonishing performance in Beat Street behind the Treacherous Three. His first solo features also came in 1984, with "Just Having Fun," "waxed for Enjoy", and "Original Human Beatbox" for Vinentertainment.
