Any fans out there. I really like the live recordings Ive heard on Wolfgangs Vault. I think he wrote alot of great songs and is definitely a legend. His only downfall is he wrote I Shot The sheriff. I dont like that song at all.

LOVE Marley. I think Ziggy does the best job of any child of a musician. He does his dad's covers proud.

Damian Marley is BRILLIANT. Have grown to like him more than Ziggy. Fresh sound, also covers his dad's stuff very nicely.

He has that spark in his eye too! He must not have had the drama with the Yoko type that Julian Lennon had...just a guess though.

The Wailers are some of Reggae music's unsung heroes...... I am talking about the Barrett Brothers Carlie & Family Man. They were one of the best rhythm sections going, in any form of music. Also the great lead guitar of Al Anderson who happened to be American rather than Jamaican. Tyrone Downie & Wya Lindo on organ/keyboards.

Anyone know which musicians are still performing with the Wailers? I remember seeing the Wailers Band a few years ago but they played a very short set due to weather issues.

I'm currently digging his SURVIVAL album from 1979. This one was the most political. Marley was always a man of the people and a champion of human rights. This was the album which best exemplified his topical and message songs.

I don't know much about the present day Wailers, but I did see them open for the ABB about 4 years ago at the Borgata in Atlantic City and they were great! Family Man is still with them.

Actually Terri, I believe Family Man passed away recently I need to check , but I'm pretty sure that is correct. One of the greatest bass players ever, period.

I was raised on Bob Marley, my dad is a huge fan and used to make me reggae mix tapes when I was growing. Not just Marley, but more obscure stuff like Third World and Steel Pulse. He and my mom went to Reggae Sunsplash a couple of times when I was a kid, and my immediate family has taken two family vacations to Jamaica since us kids have grown up.

I always say that Bob Marley and James Brown are my dad's two favorite musical artists, and that is not a bad thing Good stuff to be exposed to at an early age.

if you dig Bob Marley, you should check out Burning Spear. as the story goes...

Reggae artist Burning Spear (a.k.a. Winston Rodney) says his musical career started to take off when he ran into a young Bob Marley in a field in Jamaica. Marley told him to head over to the Studio One recording studio, and the rest is history.

"Bob was traveling with a donkey and all these various plants," explained Burning Spear in a statement. "Bob was young, dreadlocks just start to spring. I was asking Bob how I could get started and where could I go to get that start. He asked me if I know Studio One."

he's playing New Haven, Providence, & Baltimore 9/4-6, and several dates out in Colorado 9/17-19, omaha 9/20, Vancouver, BC 9/27, and SanFran 9/29-30. GO CHECK HIM OUT IF YOU LIVE NEAR ONE OF THESE DATES. YOU WILL BE BLOWN AWAY. The music is very powerful, and when Spear get Burning, they are really laying it down. One song segues into the next. Fantastic band, lots of groove.

http://www.burningspear.net/main.php

some good records are "Hail H.I.M." & "Marcus Garvey" ("Garvey's Ghost" is the dub version of the Marcus Garvey album), or the live concert from Langerado.

Some say he is a prophet. Everytime I'm in his presence, it exalts my soul. If you've ever pined to experience a Bob Marley concert, this is who you can go see right now.

Love Bob Marley. Love, love, love him.

I Shot the Sheriff makes sense when Bob sings it. Laws are different in Jamaica. He shot the sheriff, in self defense, but "I did not shoot the deputy". Makes no sense when EC sings it. Do not like EC version, but it did expose Marley to some who would never have known his music.

I got to see Bob in Oakland, CA. Beautiful man.

Carlton Barrett was murdered on April 17, 1987...his wife was involved in the plot His brother Aston ("Family Man") is still alive & well.

According to Wikipedia (so take with a grain of salt):

Today the band continues to play live in concert, and in 2006 they played on 311's Summer Unity tour along with Pepper. Their Current lineup includes: Elan Atias on lead vocals, Al Anderson on Lead Guitar, Aston "Family Man" Barrett on Bass, Keith Sterling on Keys, Drummie Zeb on Drums, Marcia Griffiths on background vocals (aka Wailers Sister)

I agree that they were a killer rhythm section, along with Peter Tosh's rhythm section of Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare, they were two of the greatest rhythm sections that ever were.

Nope!!!! Aston Family Man Barrett is still alive. Not only that I recently read an article in a bass player magazine that he's still playing and going strong. It's his brother Carlie that is deceased.

Bob Marley was awesome for sure...and died way too young & tragically...another of those "imagine if he was still on this earth today" kind of people! much of his music puts me in a good mood just from the upbeat tunes & i listen to him quite a bit....my all time fave is "no woman no cry"
the Will Smith movie "I Am Legend" has influence, several references & songs by Bob Marley in it which could make anyone discover or rediscover him for sure! even Will's character in the movie has a daughter named Marley as a tribute.

But here's something strange. I used to work in the office and the file clerk was a young Jamaican and used to wear a necklace with a huge Bob Marley pendant on it. So I figured he was a fan... I decided to make some conversation about Marley's music and albums. I'd talk and talk but he wouldn't say anything. Then he told me, in a rude kind of way that he didn't know anything about his music and only listened to the rap he was playing. I suppose to some young people the Bob Marley thing had nothing to do with music just an image or something like that.
