1945

Bob Marley is born Nesta Robert Marley in Jamaica.

He was 36 when he died of a rare form of cancer in 1981.

In his lifetime he never even got a Grammy nomination. Yet another reason a Grammy means almost nothing.

Finally in 2001 he got a “Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award”.

Marley, who would have turned 73 today, sang about everything from love to freedom to self-reflection.

His breakthrough? His album “Live!”. Recorded at the Lyceum in London on July 19, 1975.

Full Album…audio only

Here’s a poor recording of the press conference the night before the concert
