Bob Marley: Conquering Lion of Reggae
Bob Marley: Conquering Lion of Reggae is the definitive Bob Marley biography. Stephen Davis has created a painstakingly researched and intimate portrait of the charismatic artist through interviews with those closest to Marley and the man himself, including the last one before his tragic death in the spring of 1981. Written with sensitivity and insight, the book recounts in explicit detail the Wailers’ recording sessions and concerts, life at 56 Hope Road (Marley’s residence), and an authoritative examination of the king of a musical movement that swept out of Jamaica and into Western and Third World countries alike. Robert Nesta Marley was a rebel, a visionary, and an uncompromising champion of human rights who rose from the slums of Kingston, Jamaica to make reggae music and spread his own unique message of rebellion, self-determination, and the power of the individual, ultimately becoming a spiritual and political force whose voice resonated throughout the world.
