Pay respects to the legend.

Possibly the most famous and influential musician of the 20th century, Bob Marley, died on May 11, 1981. Thirty years later, the world is celebrating the life of the legend. At the Cannes Film Festival, a “definitive” biography is premiering while concerts commemorating his life are going on all over the world.

Marley is most known for his hits “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Redemption Song,” “No Woman, No Cry” just to name a few. He’s survived by 11 children, including his superstar sons Damian and Stephen.

How will you be celebrating Marley’s life today?

    “They don’t want to see us unite:
    All they want us to do is keep on fussing and fighting.
    They don’t want to see us live together:
    All they want us to do is keep on killing one another.
    They say the blood runs;
    And it runs through our line,
    And our hearts, heart of hearts divine, eh!
    And John saw them comin’, ooh! – a-with the truth
    From an ancient time”

    Bob Marley

  • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

    “Most people think, great god will come from the skies, take away everything and make everybody feel high.
    But if you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on earth: And now you see the light, you stand up for your rights.”

    Too many people just dumb down Bob Marley to being about smoking pot. He wasn’t freakin’ Cheech and Chong.

    what is w/all the personal business and bad name calling? cant we all get along?

  • Tony Redds

    Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a
    In this ‘ere rat race, yeah!
    Rat race!
    I’m singin’ that
    When the cat’s away,
    The mice will play.
    Political violence fill ya city, ye-ah!
    Don’t involve Rasta in your say say;
    Rasta don’t work for no C.I.A.
    Rat race, rat race, rat race! Rat race, I’m sayin’:
    When you think is peace and safety:
    A sudden destruction.
    Collective security for surety, ye-ah!

    Don’t forget your history;
    Know your destiny:
    In the abundance of water,
    The fool is thirsty.
    Rat race, rat race, rat race!

    Bob Marley
