ya might wanna figure that out before you go on to say you don't like an artist. Otherwise your posts are pretty much just useless dribble...oh wait...

Bob's music is something that has stood the test of time, and will continue to do so, I think. Part of the deceptiveness of what he did, though, is that many people hear the upful-sounding beats and are content to listen to it on that level, without hearing the serious message underneath it. Songs like "Real Situation" or "Roots" are good examples of this.

Granted, yes, it does sometimes irritate me when I see kids completely missing the point of some of his songs, or yelling "Rastafari!" without any sense of what it means, but if it makes them happy, more power to them, I suppose. However you listen to his music, as long as you enjoy it, that's all that matters in the end.

I totally agree.

I'm in highschool, and I see so many kids with things that have the red, gold, and green on them, and these kids have no idea of what it stands for.

They always sound surprised when I tell them a fact or two about true Rastas and whatnot. I guess you could say I'm sort of fascinated by the whole Rastafarian religion and lifestyle haha

Part of the nice thing about Rastafari is that, like all religions, the interpretation of it is left up to the individual. One of the best things I started doing shortly after I joined my first band was to start really exploring the spiritual side of reggae and Rastafari, which I still do today. I like to think it gives me more validity (might be the wrong word for it) or at least an extra dimension when I wear the sacred colors.

The shirt im wearing right now has the red, gold, and green on it.

I feel alright wearing it tho, because I understand and respect what they mean.

I think Bob was great, though it's extremely annoying to see so many people wearing his shirts simply because it depicts him smoking a joint or whatever. It's also annoying when people claim to be huge fans of his and can't even name 5 tracks off of "Legend" (of all albums).

Ah well, his music has been very inspirational to me and has opened a few doors.

Bob has become something of a conundrum over the past couple of decades. His legacy is so huge that he can serve as both a gateway and an obstacle for people that discover reggae music. His popularity means that people will probably encounter his music first, but because he's seen as the end-all, be-all of reggae, they often don't know to look past him. This was a big leap for me way back when, in that it took me a bit to realize there were other artists out there.

Yeah. That's true. He's led me to Peter Tosh, Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers, and Lee Perry so far. I believe they're all fairly popular reggae musicians as well though, so I guess I've got quite a ways to go before I'm a 'real' reggae fan.
