I am wondering why Bob Marley seems to be the symbol of reggae. He had lived a short life but I understand that he had left a legacy for the reggae music.I have heard many times his version of I Shot The Sherrif which is the original of Eric Clapton. That song is another reminiscing of my childhood. I have to admit that I love the version of Eric Clapton but I was amused upon hearing the version of Bob Marley. Truly a reggae with the instruments and the beat with the lilting voices, I understand the trademark that made reggae music popular.
