Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley, (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981). Bob was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist. He achieved international fame and acclaim. Starting out in 1963 with the group The Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style. That would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records.
Since his passing on May 11, 1981, Bob Marley’s legend looms larger than ever. As evidenced by an ever-lengthening list of accomplishments attributable to his music, which identified oppressors and agitated for social change, while simultaneously allowing listeners to forget their troubles and dance.
One of the 20th century’s most charismatic and challenging performers, Bob Marley’s renown now transcends the role of reggae luminary. He is regarded as a cultural icon. Bob implored his people to know their history. Bob urged his listeners to check out the “Real Situation” and to rebel against the vampiric “Babylon System”. “Bob had a rebel type of approach. But his rebelliousness had a clearly defined purpose to it,” acknowledges Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, who played a pivotal role in the Bob Marley biography by introducing Marley and the Wailers to an international audience. “It wasn’t just mindless rebelliousness. He was rebelling against the circumstances in which he and so many people found themselves.”
