    Bob Marley

    http://www.rumdogs.com/bobmarley.jpg
    Bob Marley broke so many boundaries during his time. In my opinion no other caribbean artist has come even close to his accomplishments.

    Question: Do you believe that there is another caribbean artist or group that shows the potential of breaking the same boundaries?

    Question: Why do you think there has been no other since him?

    RE: Bob Marley


    Dennis Brown.

    I grew up on his music while living in London and at the time, there was not a more complete artist.

    Right now it has to be DAVID RUDDER.Listen to his lyrics,then tell me what they do to you.

    RE: Bob Marley

    I would agree with David Rudder but would add Beres Hammond as well.

    Definitely Beres Hammond, but not in the roots/concious way. Still, he has become a great internationla artist, did you guys know that KC & Jo Jo, open for him sometimes? Whoa!

    [updated:LAST EDITED ON May-23-02 AT 09:26 AM (EST)]Potential.....hmmmm...


    Steel Pulse
    Burning Spear
    Buju Bantan
    Beres Hammond


    Bob's music is so timeless(like Sade or Anita Baker).
    Takes real talent to produce timeless music. Like it doesn't matter if they come out in 1982 or 2002.

    Bob was great

    I think Machel Montano and Roger George has the potential to become super stars

    RE: Bob Marley

    Phil,
    I totally agree with you about the timelessness of his music. Honestly, I don't think anyone can even compare to Bob Marley (even though Beres Hammond is my absolute favorite artist in the world).
    When you listen to the lyrics of his songs, the messages are universal. You didn't have to be from the Caribbean to understand it.
    When I think about the first verse of Redemption Song, I just get goosebumps...
    "Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds..."
    That is powerful to me...every song he sang had a hidden message of upliftment.

    The Robber believes/hopes that the next big sucess could come from one of our ragga soca stars Bunji or Treason.

    :)To coin a phrase from the talented trio, "wha's da one?!!" We have been down this road before Miss Ilndfntsy and Miss Brownskintrini. We have to agree to disagree.
