One of the twentieth century's most revered cultural figures Bob Marley was responsible for carrying reggae music far beyond the Caribbean and establishing it as an international force. He set attendance records that still stand in Europe and his 1977 Exodus album was hailed by Time magazine as the greatest of the 20th Century but Marley was no mere pop star: His combination of politically and socially conscious lyrics unforgettable melodies uncompromising Rastafarian beliefs and fierce hostility to the injustices of "Babylon" made his music the voice of the poor and dispossessed all over the globe. In this new biography Garry Steckles tells Marley's story from his birth in rural Jamaica to his tragically early death in 1981 by which time he'd overcome poverty and prejudice to become the Third World's first superstar. Steckles who has been intimately involved with reggae for more than three decades as a writer concert promoter broadcaster and fan transports you into the smoky Kingston studios where Marley made his first recordings documents his often turbulent relationships with reggae legends like studio pioneer Clement "Coxson" Dodd fellow Wailers Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer and the wildly eccentric producer Lee "Scratch" Perry introduces you to behind-the-scenes legends like Island Records founder Chris Blackwell and the volatile PR genius Charles Comer and takes you on the Rasta roller-coaster that carried Marley to the cover of the Rolling Stone and global adulation.
