    First Introduction To "uncle Bob"

    I have a very vivid memory of being introduced to Bob Marley's music (or Uncle Bob we call him). My older brother lived with his father and we never really saw him that often. I adored my brother, but at this age I was on the cusp of forming an attitude of what a real let down...

    Because Of Him..

    Yes, its because of Bob Marley that i was able to embrace, with pride, the fact that I believe in humanitarianism. I do believe in the human race and the power of love! No, I'm not some flower child rather I'm a child of the people. I'm not gullible or Nieve but am intelligent...

    I've been listening to his albums for years and they stay fresh. I love his early roots stuff, I love the Survival album, I love when he got the women in the background. It's all around good, loving, lively, meaningful music. At times, I feel he was a religious fanatic and I...
