Born As Nesta Robert Marley To A Teenaged Mother And A Middleaged Father, In The St. Ann Parish In Suburban Jamaica On February 6, 1945, Bob Marley , Just In A Brief Lifetime Of 36, Attained One Of The Most Original n Influential Status Of Musicians That The World Has Witnessed Ever !

A Product Of Local Jamaican Fusion Music Of 60s, Populary Termed As REGGAE MUSIC, Bob Marley Led A Life Full Of Experiments n Innovations Hitherto Unexplored In The Music Arena!

As The Most Definitive Pillar Of Reggae, Bob Marley, Al Thorough His Active Music Life (roughly 18yrs.), Tried To Blend Together Almost Every Aspect Of Human Existence, be That Political, Social ,Cultural . . . .et.al Into His Creative Outpours And, Thereby Took An Honest Attempt To Address The Challenges Before Human Society In General And Impoverished Jamaicans In Particular !

At 14, Bob Had Left His Native Place And Shifted To The Capital Town Of Kingston And Learned The Nuances Of Music n Arts Under The Tutelege Of A Famous Rastafarian Mr. HIGGS.

With Peter Tosh n Levingston , Bob Started The Band Named The Wailers And Launched Himself Into Music For Once n All !

As The Prevalent Vogue Of The Time In 60s, Bob Too Adopted The Tenets Of A Newer Form Of Faith-System, Technically Known As ‘RASTAFARIAN MOVEMENT’ – a pattern of beliefs Emphasizing Upon A Near Rejection Of Current Forms Of Faith n Religion And Returned Towards The Mythological Roots Of Human Origins !

Simply Put, The Rastafarians,as the members were called, Lived A Bohemian Life And Preached Sort Of Hippie Culture!

The Music Became A Potent Vehicle Of Expressions Emanating From Politics, Religion, Spirituality n The Likes !

With A Heavy Bass, Roaring Drums, Slow Pace, Instrumentation, Emphasis On Third Offbeat and a few other features, The Reggae Music Was Basically Sound Oriented That Had The Flavors Of Jazz, Saka, Local Jamaican Rhythms . . . . .et.al!

This Type Of Musical Genre Has A Laidback Feel And Bob Marley Made Sort Of An Idyllic Ambience People Had No Choices Except Being Hyptonized !

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘I SHOT THE SHERIFF’ , ‘BUFFALO SOLDIERS’ , ‘IS THAT LOVE’ are also mega hits !

Due To The Rising Status Inside Jamaica, where some people equated him to the rank of prophet, Bob Marley Became A Perceived Threat To Some Fringe Sections And That Had Resulted In An Assasination Bid Which Marley Luckily Escaped From.
