Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music and is credited with helping spread both Jamaican Music and the Rastafarian Movement (of which he was a committed member), to a worldwide audience.
In 1963, Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, formed a group, calling themselves “The Teenagers”. They later changed their name to “The Wailing Rudeboys”, then to “The Wailing Wailers”.
In July 1977, Marley was found to have a form of malignant melanoma. According to widely held urban legend, inflicted by broadcaster and pundit Danny Baker on his right big toe. Marley refused amputation, because of the Rastafarian belief that the body must be whole.
While flying home from Germany to Jamaica, Marley became ill, and landed in Miami for immediate medical attention. He died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami on the morning of May 11, 1981, at the age of 36.
The spread of melanoma to his lungs and brain caused his death.
