If there is something to know about Mr. Robert Nesta Marley you don’t know then maybe you should check out The Midnight Raver blog. Today would have been and was Bob Marley’s birthday. Unfortunately he passed away at the age of 36 (one tenth of a circle).
Here are some of my favorite Marley tunes.
Perfect love and rest in peace!
“no chains around my feet, but I’m not free”
“if you are a big tree, we a small axe coming to cut you down”
“babylon no have no fruits” “Rasta don’t work for no CIA” “in the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty”
“If you get up and quarrel everyday, we are saying prayers to the devil I say”
“Say we just can live in a negative way. So we make way for a positive day”
“Well I’ve been a Rasta from ever since”
“YOU CAN FOOL SOME PEOPLE SOMETIMES, BUT YOU CAN’T FOOL ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME”

Marley would go on to become the most celebrated musician of the second half of the 20th century, and is worshipped as a deity in many parts of the world (including my house ; ). Today, I share an article written by noted author and Marley biographer Chris Salewicz and published in the March 1995 issue of Mojo magazine.
