Bob Marley's life is the stuff of legend. Raised in the slums of Kingston, Jamaica, Marley (1945-1981) wrote songs that inspired millions. So Much Things to Say tells Marley's life story like never before. Roger Steffens traveled with the Wailers and interviewed Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer extensively. Now, drawing on 40 years of intimate interviews with band members, family, lovers, and confidants - many speaking publicly for the first time - Steffens crafts a riveting oral history depicting Marley's life.

Roger Steffens is unquestionably the most important mentor to anyone collecting reggae. From the start, he’s been sharing his collection consistently whether it be on the radio, internet, or sending you a tape. That said, his diligent work is reflected brilliantly in this audiobook and offers so much knowledge for everyone, including marley or Wailers experts. Hail up Ras Rojah!! Many many thanks for sharing once more and may Jah bless the bredren and his family..ever faithful and ever sure!

Much love,
Thundermon

  • Going Gypsy

  • One Couple's Adventure from Empty Nest to No Nest at All

Almost every couple faces a "now what?" moment as their last kid moves out of the house. There's a big empty nest looming over this new and uncertain stage in their lives. David and Veronica James chose to look at this next phase of life as a beginning instead of an ending. Rather than staying put and facing the constant reminders of empty bedrooms and backseats, a plan began to develop to sell the nest and hit the highway.
