How to Celebrate Bob Marley’s Birthday
Bob Marley, born February 6, 1945, is internationally recognized as the Godfather of reggae. While he did not invent this timeless form, he became reggae’s seminal figure. Kick back, mon, and relax to the sounds of reggae in celebration of Marley’s birthday.
Step1 Take a trip to your local library to do some reading about the man revered by Bob Marley and all other Rastafarians: Haile Selassie, former Emperor of Ethiopia.
Step2 Book a trip to the Caribbean paradise of Jamaica, Marley’s home and birthplace.
Step3 Play Bob’s debut release track, “Judge Not,” as a tribute to the beginning of his prosperous and uplifting career.
Step4 Take a stab at reading the palms of your friends and family. Prior to becoming a singer and musician, Marley was a well-known local palm reader.

Marley was born in the small village of Nine Mile in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica as Nesta Robert Marley. A Jamaican passport official would later swap his first and middle names. His father, Norval Sinclair Marley, (born in 1895), was a white Jamaican of English descent, who lived in Liverpool. Norval was a Marine officer and captain, as well as a plantation overseer, when he married Cedella Booker, a black Jamaican then eighteen years old. Norval provided financial support for his wife and child, but seldom saw them, as he was often away on trips. In 1955, when Marley was 10 years old, his father died of a heart attack aged 60.
His music released posthumously in 1983, contained unreleased material recorded during Marley’s lifetime, including the hit; Buffalo Soldier.
In July 1977, Marley was found to have malignant melanoma in a soccer wound on his right hallux (big toe). Marley refused amputation, citing worries that the operation would affect his dancing, as well as the Rastafari belief that the body must be “whole”:
“ Rasta no abide amputation. I don’t allow a man to be dismantled. ”
—From the biography Catch a Fire
Marley may have seen medical doctors as samfai (tricksters, deceivers). True to this belief Marley went against all surgical possibilities and sought out other means that would not break his religious beliefs. He also refused to register a will, based on the Rastafari belief that writing a will is acknowledging death as inevitable, thus disregarding the everlasting (or everliving, as Rastas say) character of life.
The cancer then metastasized to Marley’s brain, lungs, liver, and stomach. After playing two shows at Madison Square Garden as part of his fall 1980 Uprising Tour, he collapsed while jogging in NYC’s Central Park. The remainder of the tour was subsequently cancelled.
Bob Marley played his final concert at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 23, 1980. The live version of "Redemption Song" on Songs of Freedom was recorded at this show. Marley afterwards sought medical help from Munich specialist Josef Issels, but his cancer had already progressed to the terminal stage.
While flying home from Germany to Jamaica for his final days, Marley became ill, and landed in Miami for immediate medical attention. He died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami, Florida on the morning of May 11, 1981 at the age of 36February 13, 2009 at 3:02 pm #22130JonaParticipant

Naye Jona bannange, kale omuntu ayaweereza banne obulungi nga ali mu bulamu gwe oyagala bamujjukire batya? Kiyamba nnyo abantu okubeera nebyokulabirako bya bazira abakola emirimu ku lwo bulungi bwa bannabwe, nekulw’obuntu bwonna okutwalira awamu. Ekyo kyekimu ku bizibu Buganda byerina, nti emigigi emito tegikuze nakumanya kwa bazira Abaganda abaalwanirira eggwanga lyaffe.
Okujjukira abantu kuno kubeeramu okwebaza Katonda olwo bulamu lwa bazira bano mu ensi neeri abantu bebalwanirira, ate mubeeramu nokulaga okusiima kwa bantu eri omulimu gwebakola. Ate era mubaamu nabantu nokwejjukiza bbo benyini obuvunanyizibwa bwaabwe eri eggwanga lyaabwe, n’obuntu okutwalira awamu.
