Hi there folks,

In case you don't know I'm a huge Marley fan. I thought I'd start a thread and see how many people here feel the same way. There are so many reasons why that man's music has touched my heart! He has one of the most genuine voices I have ever heard! He had so many great songs, so many classic albums...

Please post here and tell me:

What Bob's music meant to you
How he touched you
What your favorite songs are
PLEASE tell me about the time you saw him in concert!!!!!!

And if anyone has any cool videos or links to post that would be great too!

Rastaman Vibration is a great album through and through. Plenty of great memories from since the moment I heard it. His best IMO.

"Natty Dread" is my fave Marley album. For an interesting twist, check out jazz fusion guitarist Charlie Hunter's album in which he does awesome instrumental versions of all of those songs!

I have an old Bob Marley documentary on VHS and famed Island records producer Chris Blackwell discusses how after Bob Marley became famouse he bought a BMW. Not because it is a hot sports car but because those are the initials of his band!!

Been a huge Marley fan forever....can't pick a fav. song but,if i had to pick a couple,they'd be "No Woman No Cry" & "Trench Town Rock"...all his LP's are fav's of mine...I listen to a little Marley each & every day. Reggae is my 2nd fav. music...right behind the Blues...

I have been a righteous Bob fan as long as I can remember. Never got to see him live though, but have seen the Marley boys several times. I played in a Reggae band here in Huntsville and we did alot of Bob Marley. I would have to say "No Woman No Cry" is my favorite song. I have also seen The Wailers several times and they are awesome.

Hope they have some Reggae at Wanee this year. Ziggy Marley or the Wailers or both would be great!!

BOB MARLEY IS MY "ROLL" MODEL......

Bob has influenced my playing and musical tastes since the first time I heard his music.

Interesting thread to me as i spiritually have always been connected to the reggae music, which was brought to my ears and soul thru Mr. Bob marley..In the early 70,s music was so mucha part of my up bringing as a young teen ager and always enjoying various type of music. From the radio came a few tunes." i shot the sheriff" and " get up stand up", music that made a "white guy sway and dance"and feel a warmth to the rhythm of the music. accompanied with great lyrics.Beinga young teem ager the "ghanga" scene was sucha social and emotional connection in my youthful life.I was always attracted to "black music" as years past the Mptown sound was anothert connection of good feel music.So tho gravitate to this unique sound and lyrics always a warmth in my heart to the music.IN the mid 70's my Dad took me to Jamiaca and having never been out of the country, and definately ina different land and way of life, being a new yorker i was so taken by the vast difference but the simplicity of life , the love the people the music. it became part of my soul.part of my fiber.Then in the college years the connection to partying and weed, and more Marley music.. accompanied with Peter Mcin Tosh and Jimmy Cliff.. it was like a old pair of shoes, it just always fit...To re call so many great tunes..No Woman , No cry..Could you be loved" Stir it up..Rastaman Vibration,, Jammin..REdemption song..ONe love.. and even after death Buffalo soldier" IRon Lion Zion.. I just love the warmth and love i feel just writing this stuff..I started going back to Jamaiaca in the late 90's and a few more times to Negril in the early 2000,s, I have always had that connection to the island the music the people, the love. Everything is Irie.. One thing i always felt was like a John Lennon, Bob Marley wass one of those "connected" artists that spoke to the world thru their music. as they both died differently, they both died before their time stripping this world of true LOVE..in song..Peace and brotherhood.. things this world so gladly needs to have more of... Two passing thoughts first my dog a sweet black lab is named " Marley: way before that movie came out! and two check out this artist if you dont know him already NASIO, the cd " living in the positive" it will so connect you back to Mr. Marley and last but not least is what Bob said to his son Ziggy as he was physically leaving this earth.."MONEY CAN'T BUY LIFE" , to me its always been about ONE LOVE... peace out...

if you dig Bob Marley, you really need to go see Burning Spear when they next come your way. Winston Riley is considered by some to be a prophet, in the same way Bob is. You have a chance to experience the music live, but he is getting older and doesn't tour as much as he used to. sound familiar?? his band is always hitting the note, they play one song into the next with little to no breaks in between during a 2+ hour show, and when Spear gets Burning, LOOK OUT!!!

GO SEE BURNING SPEAR - YOU WILL BE UPLIFTED!!!!!

Agreed!!! Steel Pulse is another must listen to. I really dig the horn section.

Love Bob.

Annarose... if you're a big fan, you need to come to NYC for some of the Marley birthday parties in town. The Cannibis Cup Band does a huge night at BB Kings every year. Much respect.

http://www.bbkingblues.com/schedule/moreinfo.cgi?id=3855

Just bought my daugher a cool CD produced by Ziggy called 'B is for Bob'. Its a remastered 'kid-friendly' EP of some great tracks (Three Little Birds, Get Up, Stand Up, etc.).

Right now, got Sizzla on the Zune though. Heh heh...

I've got the 2 disc compilation "Bob Marley and the Wailers GOLD"

Very good stuff for sure.

I can see why Clapton was inclined to have his "Reggae period".

Great music.
Marley had the mojo and then some. One of those guys who would have been famous even if he never picked up the guitar or wrote a song. Read the book " Catch a Fire " if you want to learn more about him.
