3.0 out of 5 stars Can't see what all the fuss is about, May 30, 2006
This review is from: Legend: The Best Of Bob Marley And The Wailers (New Packaging) (Audio CD)
Most of the songs here are pleasant enough but Mr Marley is no Chaka Demus and Pliers. It is also disappointing to note that Mr Marley reportedly took drugs during his lifetime.

Since when did "taking drugs at some time in your life" disqualify a musician as being of any import.. so did The Beatles, Brain Wilson, Bob Dylan, Beethoven and Bach (and thats just "B" list). I guess we should just dismiss all their work as well on the same basis. Give me a break.

At least Mr. Williamson's reviews are consistent. He doesn't like the Beatles very much either. He doesn't say it disqualifies Marley from being of any import as you accuse him of. He only says it is a disapointment. Do you not agree?

Marley was a Rastaman and that involved smoking ganja which was, for him, a religious sacrament. Being "disappointed" enough about this to comment on it seems rather odd under these circumstances. That would imply it's something he kept underwraps which is certainly not true. There are numerous and well-known album covers w/ him smoking what is clearly a joint, so if it bothered you, why buy any of his work? To save you from further disappointment, avoid almost all music because most musicians have used some sort of drug.

Of course he's no Chaka Demus and Pliers....dancehall wasn't his genre.

He doesn't SAY it disqualifies him, but he certainly implies it. The implication is rather clear.

Marley as with most Rasta's smoked Herb. He did not take drugs, smoke cigarette's or do a lot of stuff most people do nowadays. I garantee if you look into Bob Marley a little deeper you'll find a man that lived a cleaner life than most people you know. He was a spiritual man, a prophet, a thinker. DO NOT judge him untill you actually know something about him. He was a great man and deservs way more respect than he gets. If more people thought and acted like Bob, this world would be a great place. R.I.P. Robert Nesta Marley, ONE LOVE
