Bob Marley would have been 69 years old today if he was still with us. He unfortunately passed away on May 11, 1981 from cancer. Melanoma had spread althroughout Marley’s body to his lungs and brain. His loss will always be a tremendous one to the music community. Marley was a poet, a father, and a revolutionary. He was one of the original musicians who helped bring reggae music into the mainstream. Marley was one of the greatest songwriters of his generation. His music is timeless and the positive vibes of peace and love that he would share in his music would resonate well in today’s times. Marley was one of the special ones. We get to celebrate his legacy through his incredible music. The music of Bob Marley is celebrated all througout the world, especially today on his birthday. Today’s SOTD of Throwback Thursday is one of my favorite Bob Marley songs, the electric “Satisfy My Soul,” off the Bob Marley and the Wailers 1978 album, Kaya.
