With Bob I thnk it was more his message at the time than actual musical ability (not that it wasn't good). Redemption Song is a good example. Great tune IMHO.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

i guess you could see it that way, and if marley had been a one-off i could appreciate him more, but since he broke into the mainstream and pretty much irrevocably changed what reggae is (for the worse in my opinion) i guess it's not so much that i dislike his music as i resent his impact.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
