We Remember: The 30th Anniversary of Bob Marley's Death
You may remember Bob Marley as the Jamaican Reggae superstar that he was, as the mascot of potheads the world over... or just as the namesake of our beloved Marley Fest. But today marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary musician's death. He actually received treatment in Miami for an injury he got while playing football in London a few years earlier that had become cancerous. And passed in an unnamed Miami hospital on May 11, 1981.
He's contributed more than drug paraphernalia and endless songs for cruise ship bands to cover. His music has moved people and started movements, and he's constantly reminded us all that "one good thing about music, when it hits, you feel no pain."
See some great videos of his live performances after the jump.
