#BobMarley died on this day in 1981 at the age of 36. The Bob Marley and the Wailers compilation album, ‘Legend,’ released in 1984, is the best-selling reggae album ever with an estimated worldwide sales of more than 25 million copies. Since Marley’s early death, he’s become a global symbol. Ranked at Number 11 on Rolling Stone’s list of Greatest Artists, and #WyclefJean wrote a moving tribute, stating: “‘Redemption Song’ transcends time. ‘Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our minds/Have no fear for atomic energy/’Cause none of them can stop the time.’ It will mean the same thing in the year 3014. Today, people struggle to find what’s real. Everything has become so synthetic that a lot of people, all they want is to grasp onto hope. The reason people still throw on Bob Marley T-shirts is because his music is one of the few real things left to grasp onto.” Click the in our bio to read the tribute.
