Bob Marley was more than just a musician. He was a musical pioneer. An ambassador of Jamaican culture. A humanitarian, an activist, and a really competitive soccer player. He grew up in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Kingstown, Jamaica, but thought music could change the world. His songs talk about standing up to oppression, hope, freedom, politics, and love. He survived an assassination attempt and then tragically died of cancer at just 36 years old.
One today’s episode of Prisoners of Rock and Roll, we’re going to explore the life and music of the man who wove reggae music into the fabric of modern music.
