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.
- 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.
