27 Quotes by Bob Marley to remind you of his talent

Quotes by Bob MarleyThe late Bob Marley was of course a Jamaican singer-songwriter who became an international musical and cultural icon. For me, he is one of the greatest recording artists of all time.

His music blended mostly reggae, ska and rocksteady rhythms into compositions with a very commercial sound and broad appeal.

However, beneath the commercial sound were lyrics with real bite. And that in my opinion is why his songs remain popular to this day.

To have risen from humble beginnings to have the international impact Bob Marley had, then you have to be someone very special and he was, certainly in musical terms.

Here are 27 quotes by Bob Marley to remind you of what a talent the world has lost.
