Bob Marley :Último concierto fue el 23 de Sept del 80 (mira y escucha)


Escucha un tema del último show de Bob Marley, dio todo hasta el final  

El último concierto de Bob Marley’ fue en el Stanley Theater de Pittsburgh, Filadelfia. El 23 de Septiembre de 1980. Dos días antes de este concierto, Marley  había colapsado en el Central Park de Nueva York, haciendo un poco de ejercicio.

Bob venía de dar dos shows con llenos totales en el Madison Square Garden  al margen de que su salud ya estaba muy deteriorada. Cuando colapsó lo llevaron al hospital donde le manifestaron de que le quedaba un mes de vida por el tumor cerebral que había desarrollado, igual se fue a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania para ofrecer sin saber el último show de su vida.

El show no acabó y la gira mundial fue cancelada. Bob Marley falleció el 11 Mayo de 1981 en Miami. La familia solicitó que no mandaran flores y que ese dinero fuera destinado a fondos de caridad para personas con cáncer.

Descansa en paz genio ..

Bob Marley y los Wailers cantando cover de Bob Dylan (Muy bueno)

Los Wailers fueron una meganada que se adelantó a su época. Escucha este cover de Bob DylanLike a Rolling Stone ” de 1965, simplemente genial.Los tres cantaban y componían poca cosa no ? Bob Marley el Dylan de color logró una carrera de solista brillante, publicó solo buenos discos hasta que el cáncer nos lo quitó. Peter Tosh por su lado no se quedó atrás y publicó grandes álbunes con decenas de canciones clásicas.

Y por último el gran Bunny Wailer, él más roots de todos ellos, él que no quizo salir de Jamaica por más de una década por sus creencias es quien canta esta gema cuando los Wailers se hacían llamar los Wailin’ Wailers ….DE RODILLAS GENTE…


PETER TOSH : Felices 68 años “Steppin’ Razor”

Peter Tosh siempre será uno de mis músicos favoritos, él con Bob Marley lograron que el reggae se vuelva en música para todo el mundo, el género musical y la filosofía rasta es replicada por personas en cada ciudad de este planeta, raro no ? Que tal mérito no ?

Tosh fue más radical que el mismo Bob y terminó  siendo asesinado en los 80’s, él al igual que Bob tanto con los Wailers como solistas nos dejaron decenas de canciones .

Peter Tosh hizo correr al mismo Keith Richards de Jamaica y se quedó con su casa por un tiempo por no estar de acuerdo con Rolling Stones Records, disquera que le produjo varios discos y que lo llevó en 1978 para que abriera los conciertos de los Rolling Stones.

Esta puede ser mi canción preferida de Peter y no es reggae, escúchala y si te pone a pensar valió la pena este post .

Fools Die

The lips of the righteous teaches many
But fools die for want of wisdom
The rich man’s wealth is in the city

Vexation of the soul is vanity
Destruction of the poor is their poverty
The poor man’s wealth is in a holy, holy place

Why do you fight eachother
Why do you kill your brother
Then your reward will be the cemetery

We got to build a better nation
Clean up, clean up Jah creation
Or there will be no future for you, you and me
