Bob Marley

Reggae superstar Marley was one of the most influential artists the world has known. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

Famous Facts

  • Marley was extremely generous with his success. He often used his money to buy houses for friends and support many of the poor in Jamaica.
  • A 1977 football injury led doctors to discover a malignant melanoma in Marley’s toe. They recommended amputation, but he refused for religious reasons. The tumour then spread, which ultimately caused his death.
  • In November 2014, Forbes Magazine listed Marley as fifth on the list of the highest-earning dead celebrities.

"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."
