Author: James Henke, who has written several books about iconic musicians including John Lennon and Jim Morrison, will sign Marley Legend: An Illustrated Life of Bob Marley at Mac’s Book Tent in Coventry’s Vendor Village on Tuesday, July 29th from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Marley Legend celebrates the life and work of Bob Marley in an authorized and fully illustrated biography. This innovative book features rare photographs and 20 removable facsimiles, including Marley’s handwritten lyrics and concert memorabilia, even a private sketchbook. The package also includes a 50-minute spoken word CD featuring archival Marley interviews. Rock journalist James Henke relates the dramatic story of Marley’s life, from his impoverished childhood in Jamaica’s Trenchtown to his spiritual awakening through Rastafarianism, his multinational musical success, and his death from cancer at age 36.
In addition to interviews with Marley’s family and associates conducted especially for this book, Henke includes thoughts on favorite Marley songs from such diverse artists as U2’s Bono, Sean Paul, Ben Harper, and Chrissie Hynde. Marley’s message was one of love, peace, and equality and in words and pictures, Marley Legend shows why Bob Marley is, as Entertainment Weekly called him, “still the world’s biggest rock star.”
James Henke was a writer and editor at Rolling Stone magazine for 16 years. A former curator at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, he has written and edited several books on rock and roll.
