Bob Marley's 70th Earthday. The Guardian - picked by -- Red Bull Music Academy Radio, Vinyl Factory, WEAA 88.9 FM

I was honoured to be asked to speak or write about Bob Marley in various media  on his 70th Earthday.

In The Guardian, "His friend Vivien Goldman asks how a hard-working activist came to represent feelgood partying, and salutes his enduring influence."

The article was selected by as top of the 5 best reads in the world this week.

I also contributed to this interesting communal piece on Bob at Vinyl Factory with various people including Public Enemy's soundscaper, Hank Shocklee -- I covered Survival...

The esteemed Chairman Jefferson Mao & I shared a warm & wide-ranging extended reasoning on Bob for Red Bull Music Academy Radio: 

... & as I write this, I am about to do an interview about Bob at 2.30 (this is Feb 7, 2015...) with Claudette Habermann of National Public Radio, Baltimore, Morgan University Radio. I am following an interview with his daughter, Cedella.

One Love
... because we believe in the victory, Of good over evil...
