LA names day in honor of reggae great Bob Marley

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s Bob Marley Day in Los Angeles.

The City Council on Tuesday proclaimed the day in honor of the Jamaican reggae legend, whose hits include “I Shot the Sheriff” and “No Woman, No Cry.”

Marley was 36 when he died of cancer in 1981, but his children, Ziggy and Karen, were on hand for the honor. They joined in singing a verse from Marley’s “Redemption Song.”

Councilman Joe Buscaino says Marley’s music “brought people together in times of trouble.”

The proclamation coincides with the DVD release of the documentary “Marley.”

Ziggy Marley also is a noted musician and has a home in Los Angeles.
