This is one of my favorite Bob Marley interviews. Many people acknowledge Bob Marley only because he smoked weed and was an advocate for it, but not for his passionate music and his passion for life and freedom for all people. He was humble. He didn’t care about riches or fame; he cared about his soul and living life to bring light. I can’t say I’m a huge reggae fan, but Bob Marley is in my top 3 favorite artists of all time. Today is his birthday and I am so thankful that he was sent to this world to make it a brighter place for the 36 years that he was here. Happy birthday to the icon, the legend, the humanitarian, the “Father of Reggae” and the Rasta, Bob Marley ❤️
