The Tuff Gong Turns 69 Today, So Lively Up Yourself

It’s that time of the year again. February 6, the day the King of Reggae was born in the rural village of Nine Mile in the hills of St. Ann, Jamaica. Had he not passed away in 1981 Bob would have turned 69 on this day. It’s a given to say that Bob has represented reggae music on a scale that no other individual has ever achieved. Decades later his music still lives and his face is still at the forefront of the scene. Here are 7 great ways you can feel a little bit of that Bob vibe today.
