New Bob Marley Biography

Marley, the new Bob Marley documentary by Kevin Macdonald, has opened to great reviews at the SXSW and Berlin Film Festivals. Hailed by film critics as 'the definitive biography of the reggae legend', Marley features concert footage, interviews with Bob's friends and family, and photography by Kate Simon, author of Genesis limited edition REBEL MUSIC.

'Kate Simon has always been one of my favourite photographers. She captures intimate moments that we have never seen.' - Cedella Marley

Kate Simon is indeed the definitive Bob Marley photographer. She shot such legendary performances as the 1978 One Love Peace Concert, and The Wailers at The Lyceum in 1975 where 'No Woman No Cry' was recorded; took the iconic cover of Kaya; and captured Bob in candid moments from 1975 until his death in 1981. These photographs, and over 400 more, are presented for the first time in REBEL MUSIC: a celebration of the life and legacy of Bob Marley. Eric Clapton, Steven Van Zandt and Patti Smith have contributed to this book, as well as ex-Wailers Junior Marvin and Family Man Barrett, Island Records' founder Chris Blackwell, and members of the Marley family.
