More than 30 years after he sat in on his first recording session with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Ziggy Marley hasn’t lost his drive to succeed.The eldest son of reggae icon Bob Marley continues to forge ahead, touring and recording in hopes that his music will inspire audiences.
“I let it unfold naturally,” Marley, 44, said over the phone this week during a tour stop in Calgary. “But part of me wishes I could find a place, a true place, in the world where the influence of it is seen in a practical way. We sing about peace, and I wish I could sing peace and love and there would be peace and love in this world. We still have a lot of work to do.”
