Remembering Bob Marley

Posted by scapozzola on 02/06/2013

A very happy (posthumous) 68th birthday to music legend Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley.

In the mid-1960's, Marley spent a year living in Delaware with his mom while working at a GM plant near Wilmington.  He saved the money earned on the assembly line to help pay for subsequent studio recordings with his band, the Wailers. 

'Night Shift,' which appears on Marley's fourth album, RASTAMAN VIBRATION, describes his experiences "working on a forklift" at the GM plant.
