'Rhaatid' rock, reggae fusion in Germany


He was not popular in Jamaica, but singer Rough House is making a name for himself in Germany as part of a rock reggae group called Rhaatid.

Manchester-born Rough House, whose real name is Keith Powell Jr, played guitar on the hotel circuit for years until 1997, when he went to Germany for a three-week vacation.

"I got a job there and they arranged to fly me back to get a work permit and I went back to Germany within a week," said the singer, who has been playing the bass guitar since he was nine years old.

He has been in Germany ever since, coming back to Jamaica occasionally.
