Happy Birthday to the real revolutionary, Bob Marley. In celebration of his birth, let’s re-live his work together.

“Live for yourself and you will live in vain. Live for others, and you will live again.” – Bob Marley

“Music have to have some kinda adventure, enjoyment. It go and you come.” – Bob Marley

The Wailers are still goin’ strong, performing and spreading Bob’s message around the world with Aston “Family Man” Barrett, bass guitar player and Wailer band member for over 50 years.

I’ve been blessed to meet the band and travel with them to concerts across the US–from Louisiana to New York, San Francisco to Arizona. Along the way, they introduced me to Tribal Seeds, Steel Pulse, & one of Bob’s sons, Ky-Mani Marley. Thankful doesn’t even begin to describe my emotions towards the band and their willingness to include me on their travels. I like to think that Bob is proud of their accomplishments and sees their actions as a reflection of his vision for the world.

Happy Birthday, Bob. Rest well and know that you message is still being heard. One love.
