Bob Marley • Robert Nesta Marley (Nine Miles, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, February 6, 1945 - Miami, 11 May 1981), better known as Bob Marley was a Jamaican musician and composer. During his career he was the leader, songwriter and guitarist for the band of ska, rocksteady and reggae The Wailers (1964-1974) and Bob Marley & the Wailers (1974-1981). Marley remains the most known and respected performer of reggae music and is credited with helping spread the music of both Jamaica and the Rastafari movement (which was a committed member) to a worldwide audience. Among Bob Marley's greatest hits include "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry," "Exodus," "Could You Be Loved," "Stir It Up," "Jamming", "Redemption Song" "One Love" and, together with The Wailers, "Three Little Birds" and the posthumous releases "Buffalo Soldier" and "Iron Lion Zion". The compilation album Legend, released in 1984, three years after his death, is the best selling reggae album in history with 10 times platinum in the U.S. and 20 million copies worldwide.
