Bob Marley was a Jamaican
singer-songwriter and musician
best known for his reggae records.
Born: February 6, 1945, Nine Mile, Jamaica
Died: May 11, 1981, Miami, FL
He was the rhythm guitarist and lead
singer for the ska, rocksteady and
reggae bands the Wailers (1963-1974)
and Bob Marley & the Wailers (1974–1981).
Marley remains the most widely known
and the best-selling performer of
reggae music, having sold more than
75 million albums worldwide.
He is also credited with helping
spread both Jamaican music and the
Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience.
Marley's music was heavily influenced
by the social issues of his homeland,
and he is considered to have given voice
to the specific political and cultural
nexus of Jamaica.
His best-known hits include "I Shot the Sheriff",
"No Woman, No Cry", "Could You Be Loved",
"Duppy Conqueror", "Stir It Up",
"Get Up Stand Up", "Jamming", "Redemption Song",
"One Love", and "Three Little Birds",
as well as the posthumous releases
"Buffalo Soldier" and "Iron Lion Zion".
The compilation album Legend (1984),
released three years after his death,
is reggae's best-selling album,
going ten times Platinum
(also known as One Diamond in the U.S.)
and selling 25 million copies worldwide.
In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked
Marley as the 11th greatest artist of all time.
