Born Winston Hislop in Jamaica, dancehall deejay General Saint first made a name for himself performing with deejay Clint Eastwood (born Robert Brammer) in Great Britain. First recording with Junjo Lawes, Eastwood & Saint became noted for putting on lively, theatrical and humorous performances in the late '70s through the early '80s. At the height of their popularity they were known as one of Jamaica's better novelty acts. The two split up to pursue solo careers in the mid '80s. Their biggest selling album was Two Bad D.J. (1981).
