Marley's Ghost - Modern Day Saints #3

Twenty-five years gone, mon. Quite possibly the most spiritual pop icon of the late twentieth century, Bob Marley died a quarter century ago. A somewhat diffuse theologist, but still enormously influential around the world. A champion of the down-trodden, the third world and yes, Rastafarians, Mr. Marley's music is his message and legacy. All that is needed now is someone to catalyze this energy into a mainstream religion. Not easily done, but then again, elevating a cult into an institution never is.
