40 years since the passing of Uncle Bob

LONG LIVE BOB MARLEY

It is 40 years since legendary reggae singer Bob Marley died of cancer in Miami, aged 36, on 11 May 1981.  Bob Marley was one of the most influential people in my life growing up.  His methodology of “Music Heals” really hit home for me, as a kid with no mother in the 90’s I turned to music for healing.  Even growing up on Bob after his death, it didn’t feel like he was actually gone.  His hit Buffalo Soldier was the singer’s biggest in the UK, reaching number four in May 1983.  The 1977 album Exodus was named Album of the Century by Time Magazine.  Its safe to say legends NEVER die.
