JS – JAMAICA – Ever wondered how the King of Reggae, Robert Nesta Marley, or some of your favorite dead celebrities would look aged, had they been alive today?
Well, a recent publication by www.sachsmedia.com has left little to the imagination as it relates to our beloved Bob Marley.
According to the article titled, ‘Rock and Roll Heaven Photos’, courtesy of Sachs Media Group, comes these eerie and fascinating artiste renditions of what legendary rock stars like John Lennon, Bob Marley and Kurt Cobain, among others, would look like if they were alive today.
The article has so far amassed over 16,400 likes.
The site, in conjunction with PhoJoe, posted not just the pictures, but speculation about what place each artiste would hold in the culture.
According to the publication, had Marley been alive today, he would have been a dream partner for stars like the Fugees and Kanye West.
Marley, the publication says, is reggae music’s most influential artiste, who died in 1981 at the age of 36.
According to Sachs Media Group report Marley, born in the Jamaican ghetto of Trench Town, became reggae music’s most influential artiste.
Marley founded the Wailers with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, and the group produced some of the genre’s most recognised songs, including Get Up, Stand Up and I Shot the Sheriff.
After Tosh and Wailer left the group, Marley continued producing such hits as Exodus, One Love and Three Little Birds.
Marley was hugely influential in Jamaica in the mid-1970s, described by Time Magazine as rivalling the government as a political force.
He died of cancer in Miami in 1981, and was buried in Jamaica with full state honours. Marley was later inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
THE STAR also examined a few things the publication said Marley would have accomplished had he been alive today.
According to www.sachsmedia.com, Marley’s success was globally inspirational in a way no previous superstar had been.
Had he lived, he would undoubtedly have gone beyond his collaborations with Jamaican, American and British musicians, becoming the central figure in the ‘world music’ explosion and forging new fusions with artistes from Africa, Latin America and Asia.
It is also likely that he would have also attempted to use his influence beyond the musical domain, challenging the ongoing dominance of the old colonial powers and serving as a spokesman for people of colour around the world.
