prophet (his wife Rita switched him to Rastafarianism) and a revolutionary singer. Early death

rocked the world with some of the most popular numbers that world had ever heard.
Born as Robert Nesta Marley on 6th February 1945, Bob left home at the age of 14 years to

the Wailers, seven of which were studio albums and four live albums.
