Before I report about this new book, for those of you that have never seen the documentary called MARLEY please check it out. Its a great 2 and 1/2 hour film. Bob Marley was certainly an interesting man that left an amazing legacy, big family and international fame. This new book looks to tell the back story of his inter-racial birthing, early formation of the Wailers, relationship with Chris Blackwell of Island Records, politics, concerts, religious beliefs, illness that lead to him passing at only 36. Looks to be a good read for any fan of his music. See link below from recent New Yorker, I think you will agree.
I thought you would want to read Books: Stir It Up, by Hua Hsu. The battle over Bob Marley. http://nyer.cm/FePShU1
