Arguably the most famous Reggae artist of all time, Bob Marley would’ve celebrated his 74th birthday on February 6th. Looking back on his life, it’s hard to fully quantify his impact, as he has gone on to become not only a celebrated musical icon but a cultural one as well.
From his work with The Wailers, to his chart-topping solo album Exodus, it’s easy to see why Marley currently holds the record for the best-selling reggae album of all time with Legend, his greatest hits album. Marley was also an outspoken activist, famously bringing on stage the leaders of two opposing political parties in Jamaica at the One Love Peace Concert in 1978, and having them shake hands.
Whether you’re a Marley addict yourself or simply know someone who is, SPY has found some diverse and eclectic Marley merchandise everyone will love.
