Bob Marley is a king of reggae music, a musical genius and a cosmic guru, a mystical poet, and a restless soul. He was born in 1945 in Jamaica, and he was brought up by his mom and grandpa. Young Bob had to fight for his life, and he has got a nickname “Tuff Gong”, which later on gave the name to his recording label. In his high school times, he created a band named “The Wailers”, which was developing as an innovative band and in the late 1960s they signed up a contract with Island Records, with a producer who got interested in Jamaican music. He managed to earn great money with the music of Bob Marley: in particular, the single the band released in 1975 “I Shot the Sheriff” achieved crazy popularity and sold millions of copies. Just a few years later, Marley’s huge hit “No Woman No Cry” was recorded, and it played a role not just in music but in Jamaican history as well as it became a symbol of peace between two local political parties. In those times Bob has turned into a devoted Rastafarian and had a proper image, with long dreadlocks and special dress code. However, very soon he lost his interest in this lifestyle. He recorded his album “Survival” and toured in Africa, where he got inspiration for writing his popular hits like “Africa Unite”, “So Much Trouble In The World”, “Zimbabwe” and others. While playing football one day, Marley got a leg trauma, and the following medical investigation has shown that the musician has got cancer. Bob Marley died in Miami in 1981, when he was only 36 years old. His legacy and his contribution to reggae music and the modern music, in general, is impossible to underestimate, and his songs are still popular, decades after his death.
