Description

Explore the entire, incredible journey of Bob Marley and the Wailers, and their enduring legacy, in this unique visual history.

More than four decades after Marley’s death, he and his bandmates remain the most famous reggae artists of all time--and one of the most famous bands of all time, period.Illustrated with photos and memorabilia from all phases of their journey, Bob Marley and the Wailers illuminates the lives and times of the man and his collaborators. Their evolution from early-’60s Jamaican ska act to international superstars was not just improbable, but unprecedented for an act from an underdeveloped country.

As you make your way through the band’s story, you will see the crucial role they played in establishing reggae as a globally popular form of music, and the influence that the Rastafari movement had on their lives and sound; plus, how Marley’s socially conscious lyrics and actions made him a universal symbol of pride and justice.

This beautifully designed volume includes:
 
  • A complete history of the band, right up to Marley’s untimely death in 1981, and his continuing influence today
  • Fantastic performance and candid off-stage photography
  • Images of rare memorabilia
  • Sidebars from a roster of respected music journalists
  • Coverage of the 2024 Bob Marley biopic One Love

This is the definitive illustrated biography of Bob Marley and the Wailers—a must-have for every fan of the world music legend.
Explore the entire, incredible journey of Bob Marley and the Wailers, and their enduring legacy, in this unique visual history.

This is a light read about Bob Marley just in time to get you ready for the One Love movie. It also had a bunch of pictures in it that I had never seen before.



Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of the book for my honest opinion
