Reggae as a class of music with its slow bass beat is a very enjoyable genre. It is hard not to give credit or turn away from the man who put this genre of music and his country on the map. Bob Marley's powerful political lyrics and new age sound has become timeless. It is more" today" then it was when he wrote it; timeless work, absolutely timeless. He also comes from humble beginnings in the St Anne township (the same township as the first lady of Jamaica).
