(bobsleigh) Marley was born at Nine Miles on February 6, 1945.
He was a Jamaican reggae artist, and actually the one who ensured
that reggae spread beyond Jamaica.
In his tenth year, while going to a poor
little school, he earned his first pound by singing on the street.
His guitar was made out of an old herring pan and wood. (rubbish?)
His first single was recorded in 1962. With some friends, Peter
Tosh and Bunny Livingston, he formed the music group the Wailers.
He married Rita Anderson on February 10, 1966. It was because
of Rita that he became interested in the rastafarian movement.
He became one of the main promoters. Bob Marley died on May
11, 1981. He had cancer.
Bob Marley produced many songs. Songs that
are internationally famous like 'No Woman, no cry', 'I Shot
The Sherrif', 'Get Up, Stand Up', 'Jamming, Waiting In Vain',
'One Love/People Get Ready', 'Three Little Birds', 'Could You
Be Loved' and 'Redemption Song'. He created his own label Tuff
Gong, referring to his Jamaican nickname.
We wish to quote from his song 'Forever Loving Jah. 'Jah'
is a short from of the Divine Name. For example, you can see
this form in "Hallelujah" - "Praise Jah".
