Daily Motivation – You Must At Least Try!

Good idea

Don Letts (born 10 January 1956) is a British film director, DJ and musician.

Letts was born in London, and educated at Tenison’s School in Kennington. In 1975, he ran the London clothing store Acme Attractions, selling “electric-blue zoot suits and jukeboxes, and pumping dub reggae all day long.”[1] He was deeply inspired by the music coming from his parents’ homeland, Jamaica, in particular Bob Marley. After seeing one of Marley’s gigs at the Odeon inHammersmith (June 1976) Letts was able to sneak into the hotel and spent the night talking to and befriending Marley.[2] By the mid-1970s Acme had quite a scene, attracting the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, Chrissie Hynde, Patti Smith, Deborah Harry and Bob Marley.
