bob marley - He brought reggae music to me

by Nancy
(Fresno, CA, USA)

He brought reggae to the world and to me. He made people aware of Jamaica and introduced many to Rasta who would have never heard of it otherwise.

If I had not heard the Wailers I would have never developed the interest in Ital cooking I have, or the obsession with Jamaican history and culture I have developed.

The Riddim Twins - SLY Dunbar and ROBBIE Shakespeare

by Gary
(London, England)

Had to nominate the two, because you can't have one without the other.

For me, the legendary 'twins' are the greatest session musicians in history.

I've been a fan of theirs since the mid-seventies when I was living in Jamdown. And 35 years later, they are still going strong.

If Bob Marley brought Reggae to the world, the twins pushed it up a notch. They are innovators and not afraid to incorporate different forms of music and play it in their own unique style. They can play anything and have played with everyone.

For a small country, Jamaica has punched way above its weight and has had an amazing influence on history, on politics, on sports, on entertainment, on religion and the Arts.

Ziggy is the son of the pride and joy of Reggae, Bob Marley.

I think Reggae is in the blood of the Marleys. Ziggy will forever live and bear the name of his father.

Peter Tosh - The Bush Doctor

Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh is the REAL king of Jamaican reggae music.

He taught Bob Marley to play the guitar, member of the wailers then went solo. An absolute legend.

Webmaster's Note:
Peter Tosh, born Winston Hubert McIntosh (19 October 1944 – 11 September 1987) was a reggae musician who was a core member of The Wailers who then went on to have a successful solo career as well as being a trailblazer for the Rastafari movement.

Peter Tosh was born in Petersfield, Jamaica with a father and mother too young to take care of him. He grew up raised by his aunt, speaking out for those who could not fight for themselves.

Nicknamed Steppin' Razor, he began to sing and learn guitar at a young age inspired by the American stations. After an illustrious career with The Wailers and as a solo musician, he was murdered at his home during a robbery...Full article on Wikipedia.
