Bob Marley: The Untold Story by Chris SalewiczAn important book if you have been touched by the music of Bob Marley, especially those songs that you could feel arose not only from a spiritual well-spring, but from the ghettos of Jamaica and experiences that were authentically in solidarity with the Third World and those in poverty. The book goes into much detail into his life and work, and, if one has listened to all of Bobs albums and felt that different things were going on historically and musically, this read will help you truly sort them out. I read the book hoping to understand more of the social justice aspect of his work, and I feel that it helped me to do that, though it also helped me to revisit so much that I love about the art of Bob Marley and the Wailers. Much about Peter Tosh in the book as well, an artist who helped to shape my political consciousness at a young age like no other back in the 1980s. I found the evidence that the CIA sponsored the assassination attempt on Marley very important, and some other material of this sort was included, but I wish that there was more.
...Bobs true rebel spirit lies in his devastatingly accurate depictions of ghetto life and official oppression and corruption. The pain of Slave Driver; the anger of Rebel Music (3 OClock Roadblock), The Belly Full (But We Hungry), and Rat Race; the inspired vision of recording Haile Selassies speech to the United Nation as War; in his raising aloft the arms of Prime Minister Michael Manley and opposition leader Edward Seaga in an effort at unity; in his forming relationships with Kingstons gang leaders in an effort to cool them out; in his dispensing thousands of dollars at a time to penniless mothers; in his efforts to bestride the racial and economic barriers inherent in Jamaica and throughout Babylon; in his establishing the concept of Babylon in our culture and souls. And isnt it curious that Bob Marley is seen as a rebel because he had a genuine belief in peace and an end to oppression? (411)

Largely based on the life and philosophy of Robert Nesta Marley, I Am Legend , starring Will Smith, opened to the largest box office for a film released during December, having been released worldwide on December 14, last year. I Am Legend is a science fiction novel by Richard Matheson.
Significance of Bob Marley in I am Legend film?
Does anyone know what it is? I got one of his greatest hits but it doesnt have ''dont worry about a thing cause every little things gonna be alright''. I didn't know that was the name of the song. So now that scene has a little more meaning given the circumstances. Krytonite said: It's "Three Little Birds".
Cuz what else can you do at 3am?

His character also tried to sing I Shot the Sheriff. That's cool. I so want to see that movie. It is about a guy who is the last survivor after a virus wipes out everyone else on the face of the earth and he is all alone. It's supposed to be a very dark movie, so am glad to know there will be Marley music there to lighten stuff up a bit.
