Loved playing barefoot soccer. Got skin cancer on his foot.

 

Some think it was a murder conspiracy.

I can’t believe that he was only 36 when he died.

I’m not much of a reggae fan but I did like some of his work.

And I appreciate the impact he had in music and on the world in the brief time he was alive.

RIP

Two days before the festival, Bob Marley was shot in his home. Located on Hope Road, gunmen assaulted the ‘No Woman, No Cry’ singer. Along with Marley, his wife Rita and his manager were also shot at and sustained injuries.

 

 

Bob Marley performed his most iconic festival set that evening, known today as one of the greatest moments in music festival history. He joined hands of two opposing parties and demonstrated his message of peace and love beautifully. Bob Marley lived another five years, before his mysterious death. There is a reason why the Jamaican people, along with the rest of the world, harbour so much love for this man, even today. He was later asked why he did what he did and this is what he had to say,

“The people who are trying to make this world worse aren’t taking a day off. How can I?”
