Lee Scratch Perry asking fans for help after fire destroys his studio

Jamaican Musician Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is asking fans to help replace his musical equipment after his Recording Studio was wrecked by a fire.

The dub music pioneer lost many of his prized possessions in the blaze at his facility in Switzerland on Thursday, including stage outfits, music, art works, electronic equipment and books.

Perry posted pictures of the damage on Facebook.com and described the items he lost in the inferno.

In his message, Perry went on to beg his fans for help, promising backstage passes to gigs on his next tour to anyone who can contribute new equipment and costumes.

The veteran musician is due to play concerts in the U.K. and the U.S. next year.
