The new biography of Bob Marley “So Much Things to Say: The Oral History of Bob Marley” by Roger Steffens, offers new views of the legendary reggae artiste. Among some of the most memorable things about Marley provided in the book are:
1. Bob Marley had no will when he died. As a Rastafarian, Marley was not interested in drafting his own will and never handled any of his estate earnings. He believed that to do so would be surrendering to the Babylon, so his will was left open and he never thought about sharing his property. According to Forbes magazine, Marley’s estate totals some $21 million, which makes him the highest-earning deceased celebrity to date.
