Episode 147: Rocktober: The Bob Marley Assassination Attempt

Bob Marley went from singing R&B harmonies in Trenchtown, Kingston, Jamaica to becoming a pioneer of reggae music, bringing his own blend of reggae, rock and ska music to a global audience. But as a popular figure in Jamaica, he was unwillingly thrust into the country’s political strife.  The situation became so dangerous for Marley that on December 3, 1976, he became a target of assassins.
