    I know that a couple of bob MArley's kids are recording artists , and I wanted to know if any of them are any good reggae artists. Ive heard that Damian Marley is good. Also which one of his kids has the album "Dragonfly" , someone recommended it to me and they said Flea plays bass on it.
  2. i know the name Ziggy Marley, and i think he's pretty good, of course no bob, but good in his own right

    Ziggy's pretty good. Damien (Jr. Gong) has 2 decent records under his belt, so far.
  4. I saw Damian perform in Kaua'i two weeks ago. His live show is incredible. He seems to have inherited some of his father's charisma and social consciousness, and I hear echoes of Bob in his voice too. But Damian definitely has his own special thing going on. I'd describe it as a mix of reggae, dancehall, hip-hop, and r&b.

    Stephen Marley (who worked with Ziggy in the Melody Makers and has produced on his own) co-produced/co-wrote the music on Damian's albums, and he performs on the as well.

    I've got a Ziggy live album on which he covers several Bob tunes, and he sounds just like his old dad! :cool:
