Day 98 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Bob Marley & The Wailers - Concrete Jungle
So much has been said and written about Bob Marley that I won't even begin to delve into the story behind the man... it is almost become common knowledge among the masses, even those who aren't really into reggae. All I have to say today, on Bob's birthday, is that the man and his music have touched my life in ways that would be even hard to explain. Bob was my gateway, as he probably was and continues to be for countless reggae fans, into this music that I love with every fiber of my being. I won't rehash the story of how Bob came into my life and what he did for me during a rough time growing up when my older brother died suddenly but the love for him runs in my blood. With that said, here's the 98th tune in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge, in honor of Bob Marley and my brother Barry... you two will always be synonymous in my world.
