LEE PERRY's secret lab studio destroyed in fire

A studio belonging to musician and producer LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY in Switzerland has burned down.

According to a BBC report his equipment, instruments and famous “magic hats” have been destroyed in the fire.

The Jamaican music legend told fans via Facebook that the disaster struck when he forgot to put a candle out.

“My whole secret laboratory burned out,” he explained. “My whole life collections, arts, my magic hats, my magic boots, all my crazy show outfits and costumes,” PERRY said.

This is not the first time fire has struck one of the producer’s studios.

Back in 1979 he burned down the original Black Ark Studios, home to some of his most famous recordings.

PERRY recently revealed a run of live shows in the UK as part of his upcoming world tour.

Last year he put out his Back On The Controls album on the Upsetter label.
