Happy Birthday, Bob Marley


Had cancer not taken him at age 36, Bob Marley (1945-1981) could have turned 70 today. The man who did more than anyone to make the reggae sound of his native Jamaica popular in the United States had made his first recordings at the age of 17 in 1962, so despite his early demise, he left a large and rich legacy of recordings. Fortunately, his popularity also led to a few of his concert appearances being filmed; here's a classic one.
