From his website:

Three years earlier, in London, Bob hurt a toe while playing football. The wound had become cancerous and was belatedly treated in Miami, yet it continued to fester. By 1980 the cancer, in its most virulent form, had begun to spread through Marley's body.

He fought the disease for eight months, taking treatment at the clinic of Dr. Joseph Issels in Bavaria. Issels' treatment was controversial and non-toxic and, for a time anyway, Bob's condition seemed to stabilise. Eventually, however, the battle proved too much. At the start of May Bob Marley left Germany for his Jamaican home, a journey he did not complete. He died in a Miami hospital on Monday May 11, 1981.

As a sufferer/survivor of cancer myself I urge everyone to support your local Cancer Society.

We have lost way too many fine souls in our world to this terrible disease.

Much love bob...

I second that jonboy. ;) (will be the biggest dube ive hit in along time seeing as i've cut back quite abit).

Rise up this mornin', smile with the rising sun. Three little birds, pitched by my door-step. Singin' sweet songs, of melodies pure and true, sayin' "this is my message to you, whoo, hoo." Singin' dont woory about a thing, 'cause ev'ry little thing is gonna be alright.

Rastaman Chant

-B.Marley

I hear the words of the rasta man say

Babylon your throne gone down, gone down

Babylon your throne gone down

Said, I hear the words of the higher man say

Babylon your throne gone down, gone down

Babylon your throne gone down

And I hear the angel with the seven seals

Babylon your throne's gone down, gone down

Babylon your throne gone down

I say fly away home to zion, fly away home

I say fly away to zion, fly away home

One bright morning when my work is over

Man will fly away home

One bright morning when my work is over

Man will fly away home

One brlght morning when my work is over

Man will fly away home

I say fly away home to zion, fly away home

I say fly away to zion, fly away home

One bright morning when my work is over

Man will fly away home
