Truth is everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. ~ Bob Marley

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. ~ Bob Marley ~ retrieved May 11, 2015 ©

The first major rock artist to come out of a Third World country, Bob Marley did more than anyone else to popularize reggae around the globe. He was a gifted songwriter who could mix protest music and pop as skillfully as Bob Dylan, and his songs of determination, rebellion, and faith became important parts of the rock and pop canon. Thirty years after Marley's death, hits like ‘No Woman No Cry’ and ‘Is This Love’ sound as vibrant as ever. ~ Rolling Stone: Bob Marley ~ retrieved February 5, 2014 © Rolling Stone
