Bob Marley is one of the most widely-recognized and revered musicians of our time. Born in Jamaica in 1945, he started playing music at the age of 14 and didn’t quit until 1981 – the year he succumbed to cancer at the age of 36.
Many people credit Marley for introducing Jamaican-born reggae to a U.S. and worldwide audience in the 1960s and ’70s. His compilation album, Legend, which was released posthumously in 1984, remains the best-selling reggae album of all time, with sales of more than 20 million copies.
