Information about Bob Marley

Bob Marley
Bob Marley

Bob Marley, the legendary reggae icon, was born in a rural village of Nine Mile in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica on February 6, 1945. Throughout his career, the cultural, social and political issues of his homeland greatly influenced his music. He was the rebellious voice behind the enlightened lyrics advocating change towards freedom from racial oppression by western colonial rule while encouraging listeners to forget their problems and dance under the unifying force of "one love." He opposed social hierarchy and declared his greatest ambition, “I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all.“ His rebel music with poetic lyrics of social and political relevance further illustrated his conviction as he sang, “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our minds.” Some of his best known hits are "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry", “One Love”, "Stir It Up", "Redemption Song", and “Jamming”. Bob Marley succumbed to cancer on May 11, 1981 in Miami, Florida while on his way home to his beloved Jamaica. On his hospital bed, his last words to his son Ziggy were “Money can’t buy life”. Long after his death, his musical legacy with a message calling for change continues to reverberate in the international communities of all race, color and creed.
