Did musical rivals orchestrate the whole thing?
No. It was just people who were with some other artists. In those days, it was just politics.
Even after the arrest, there have been several periods when the Maytals were on hiatus or broken up. Why have you and the band always drifted back together?

Well, we never really break up. We just stop tour for a while and do other things. Some of the guys I started with early [such as Raleigh Gordon, Winston Wright, and Winston Grennan], they died. And some of my family died. But my musicians could work with anybody or help out any other band. So they do what they had to do until I was ready to do it again.
Why didn't you decide to just retire at some point?
It's not time for that yet. I just born again. I feel like I born again, you know.
