Carlton "Carly" Barrett (December 12, 1950 - April 17, 1987) was an influental reggae drummer, and member of Bob Marley and The Wailers since 1969. Along with his brother Aston "Family Man", Carly co-wrote "Talkin' Blues" and performed on every Wailer album since. Barrett was the originator of the one drop rhythm, a percussive drumming style. With Carly's beats and his brother Aston's bass, the Wailer rhythm section planted the seeds of today's international reggae. Barret was murdered outside his home in Jamacia on April 17, 1987.
