Carlton Carly Barrett (17 December 1950 – 17 April 1987) was an influential reggae drummer and percussion player. His musical development in the early years was with his brother Aston Family Man Barrett as a member of Lee Scratch Perrys house band The Upsetters. The brothers joined Bob Marley and The Wailers around 1970. He wrote the well known Bob Marley song War and with his brother Aston co-wrote TalkinBlues. Carlton Barrett is featured on all the albums recorded by the Wailers. Barrett popularised the one drop rhythm, a percussive drumming style created by Winston Grennan. With Carlys beats and his brother Astons bass, the Wailer rhythm section planted the seeds of todays international reggae. Barrett was murdered outside his home in Jamaica on 17 April 1987.
