The story of The Wailers is a litany of betrayal and greed that's rarely been reported elsewhere. The Wailers played with Bob Marley on all of his hit singles and albums - records that have sold an estimated 250 million copies worldwide, and established Marley himself as a cultural and musical icon.

Written in collaboration with Family Man and other surviving members,Wailing Blues reveals the truth behind the Marley legacy, traces the early lives of the Barrett brothers before they joined Marley in the '60s and discusses how reggae artists like Lee 'Scratch' Perry influenced the band.
