E41: Bob Marley

Bob Marley is responsible for great songs like “One Love,” “No Woman No Cry,” and “Get Up, Stand Up”—songs that brought joy, but also encourage radical social change. Though he’s the poster child for easygoing reggae music and the peaceful Rasta life, Bob Marley was dirt poor for most of his life, and lived in Jamaica during some of its most tumultuous years. He died of cancer at 36, just a few years after he became an international superstar.
