Published to coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, "Marley Legend" celebrates the life and work of Bob Marley in an authorized and fully illustrated biography. In the same interactive format as the best-selling "Lennon Legend," this innovative book features rare photographs and 20 removable facsimiles, including Marley's handwritten lyrics and concert memorabilia, even a private sketchbook. The package also includes a 50-minute spoken word CD featuring archival Marley interviews. Rock journalist James Henke relates the dramatic story of Marley's life, from his impoverished childhood in Jamaica's Trenchtown to his spiritual awakening through Rastafarianism, his multinational musical success, and his death from cancer at age 36. In addition to interviews with Marley's family and associates conducted especially for this book, Henke includes thoughts on favorite Marley songs from such diverse artists as U2's Bono, Sean Paul, Ben Harper, and Chrissie Hynde. Marley's message was one of love, peace, and equality and in words and pictures, "Marley Legend" shows why Bob Marley is, as "Entertainment Weekly" recently called him, "still the world's biggest rock star."


Fantastic graphical account of Bob Marleys life


Great read for any Marley fan. Fantastic additions of old concert posters/tickets. Well worth the dosh.
