Nesta Robert Marley, OM, pka “Bob Marley”, was born February 6, 1945 and passed on May 11, 1981.  He is an icon in reggae music and is credits with helping the spread of both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement throughout the world.

Young bud nuh know storm (experience teaches wisdom).  Respect, Bob.
