Remembering Music Icon Bob Marley
The reggae legend died 30 years ago today. Look back at his remarkable growth, from his modest beginnings to becoming one of the world's most beloved musicians.
May 11, 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of iconic reggae singer Bob Marley’s death. To honor the legend’s life, we take a look at how he grew from modest beginnings to one of the world’s most beloved musical icons. Early years
Born: Feb. 6, 1945 in a small village in Jamaica.
 His parents: Bob Marley was born to his mother Cedella Booker and his father Norval Sinclair Marley who was from another country.
Childhood friend: Bob and his closest childhood friend Neville “Bunny” Livingston (now known under this famous name) were later raised as stepbrothers in a poor neighborhood in Kingston. 
 His Career
The Wailers: Together with Bunny Wailer and noted reggae musician Peter Tosh, Bob formed “Bob Marley & The Wailers” in 1963. See images of the band’s album covers. 
 Hits: The Wailers had numerous hits, including groundbreaking tunes like “Get Up, Stand Up” and “I Shot the Sheriff” which regained popularity after another music legend covered it.
 Break-up: In 1974 the band broke up, but Bob continued to record under the name “Bob Marley and the Wailers.” The other members, Tosh and Bunny, also enjoyed successful solo careers.
