“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” –Robert Nesta Marley

There are few entertainers that have influenced pop culture as intensely as Bob Marley. His sound has transcended race, gender, class, social experiences, language and numerous other classifications that, at times, create divisive systems of oppression. He sang messages of redemption, equality and peace, while spreading love amid guitar riffs and steel drums.

Bob Marley’s music will continue to move us rhythmically, politically and spiritually. Happy birthday!

In this interview, Marley discusses Rastafarianism, the superficial legalities of marijuana and his civil rights.

Just one of my favorite Marley tunes. Enjoy.
