What was it about Bob Marley that made him so popular in a world dominated by rock ''n'' roll? How is it that he not only has remained the single most successful reggae artist ever, but also has become a shining beacon of radicalism and peace to generation after generation of fans?

Chris Salewicz, the bestselling author of "Redemption Song," the classic biography of Joe Strummer, interviewed Marley in Jamaica in 1979. Now, for the first time, in this thorough, detailed account of Marley''s life and the world in which he grew up, Salewicz illuminates everything from the Rastafari religion and the musical scene in Jamaica to the spirit of the man himself. Interviews with dozens of people who knew Marley and have never spoken before are woven through the narrative as Salewicz seeks to explain why Marley has become such an enigmatic and heroic figure, loved by millions all over the world.

Chris Salewicz, the bestselling author of Redemption Song, the classic biography of Joe Strummer, interviewed Marley in Jamaica in 1979. Now, for the first time, in this thorough, detailed account of Marley’s life and the world in which he grew up and which he came to dominate, Salewicz brings to life not only the Rastafari religion and the musical scene in Jamaica but also the spirit of the man himself. Interviews with dozens of people who knew Marley and have never spoken before are woven through the narrative as Salewicz seeks to explain why Marley has become such an enigmatic and heroic figure, loved by millions all over the world.

Praise

"Including a handy if not comprehensive update on Marley's surviving associates, Salewicz's is a nicely reflective biography, treating the social and religious aspects of Marley's life and legacy along with the bow-biz success...." 04/01/2010

"To those inquiring minds...who want to know what Marley ate for breakfast the day he married Rita Anderson (curried goat, rice, green bananas), or what name the Maoris in New Zealand bestowed on the beloved singer ("the Redeemer"), Salewicz's book should be quite welcome...." - Baz Dreisinger 07/04/2010
