Bob Marley would have been 70 today.
He died, way too young, in 1981, aged only 36.
The Jamaican Prime Minister's eulogy at his funeral included these words…
His voice was an omnipresent cry in our electronic world. His sharp features, majestic looks, and prancing style a vivid etching on the landscape of our minds. Bob Marley was never seen. He was an experience which left an indelible imprint with each encounter. Such a man cannot be erased from the mind. He is part of the collective consciousness of the nation.
