The Legendary Musician, Bob Marley, Would Have Been 68 Today !
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 !

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 !
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 !
