Biographical Notes - excerpted and edited from from

Robert Nesta Marley (February 6, 1945 - May 11, 1981) was a Jamaican singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He is the most widely known performer of reggae music, and is famous for popularizing the genre outside Jamaica. A faithful Rastafari, Marley is regarded by many as a prophet of the religion.

Marley is best known for his reggae songs, which include the hits "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry", "Three Little Birds", "Exodus", "Could You Be Loved", "Jammin", "Redemption Song", and "One Love". His posthumous compilation album Legend (1984) is the best-selling reggae album ever, with sales of more than 12 million copies.

Marley was born in the small village of Nine Miles in the Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica. His father was a white Jamaican born in 1895 to British parents. He was a Marine officer and captain, and a plantation overseer, when he married Cedella Booker, an eighteen-year-old black Jamaican, Bob Marley's mother. The father provided financial support for his wife and child, but seldom saw them, as he was often away on trips. Marley was ten years old when his father died of a heart attack in 1955 at age 60.

Marley and his mother then moved to Kingston's Trenchtown slum, where he was forced to learn self-defense, as he became the target of bullying because of his racial makeup and small stature (5'4" or 163 cm tall). He gained a reputation for his physical strength, which earned him the nickname "Tuff Gong".

His recording career began in 1962, with the release of two singles which attracted little attention. But by 1964, his group, "Bob Marley and The Wailers" had topped the record charts in Jamaica, and Marley was on his way to worldwide fame and popularity.

In July 1977, Marley was found to have cancer in a soccer wound on his right big toe. Marley refused amputation, citing worries that the operation would affect his dancing, as well as the Rastafarian belief that the body must be whole. He died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami, Florida on the morning of May 11, 1981 at the age of 36. His final words to his son Ziggy were "Money can't buy life". Marley received a state funeral in Jamaica and was buried in a crypt near his birthplace. A month before his death, he was awarded the Jamaican Order of Merit.
