Five Bob Marley Quotes and a Live Clip

Bob Marley, 6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981

"Though the road's been rocky it sure feels good to me."

"I don't stand for black man's side, I don't stand for white man's side, I stand for God's side."

"Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be. But, before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean."

"Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life."

"Judge not unless you judge yourself"

Hi Joe!

Great idea to quote Bob Marley! I love his music just for the rhythm but for the lyrics, too.
Did you notice, when you go to record stores and look at the pictures on the walls and on the records. There are onle very few musicians who will smile and look happy from deep within.
And Bob Marley allways is one of them.

The video can not be watched in Germany for copyright reasons, but I know this concert for I have the DVD, this clip seems to be taken from.

By the way, if you love Reggae, look for "Big Mountain". They have some great stuff, too. Fro example a cover version of Cat Stevens' "Where do the children play" or look for "Love is the only way". I couldn't find one of them on youtube.
But listen to this song as an example:

Stefan,

Thanks...and I agree. Why do so many musicians have to try to look so serious and tough. I like Bob Marley's music not only because it sounds good to me but also the message behind it...very positive. Thanks for the link also.
