Q & A

Kristin H: My son and I just saw an actual video of Bob playing "Redemption Song", and my son was wondering if the guitar was a Taylor, with the holes and 'flares' on the top....was it custom made?

Ziggy: It is an Ovation Guitar.

Raymond:I'm from Holland. I want to tattoo the first two lines of Waiting in vain on my back, but I see different versions of the text on Internet. So I want to check with you guys what is the correct spelling.

Cedella: From the very first time I blessed my eyes on you girl

Solomon: I see different information everywhere. Who are really Bob Marley's family? Family members are: Mrs. Rita Marley, Sharon, Cedella, Ziggy, Stephen, Rohan, Karen, Stephanie, Julian, Ky-Mani, Damian. We are aware of many other claims, you might find this passage from Mrs. Rita Marley's biography helpful:

"According to law, the estate had to advertise for anyone who felt that he or she had a claim. Anyone who claimed to be owed anything, or who claimed to be a child of Bob Marley, was given ten days to report. Some of the claims were amazing! There were people much older than Bob who claimed he was their father, other who claimed to have been adopted my me!1"
