Biography

Kingston, Jamaica (1974 – 1981)

Bob Marley and the Wailers were a band created in 1974 by Bob Marley, after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer left the precursor band, The Wailers.

Bob Marley and the Wailers formed in Kingston, Jamaica and consisted of Bob Marley himself as guitarist, song writer and lead singer, Wailers Band as the backing band and the I Threes as backup vocalists.

The band included the brothers Carlton Barrett and Aston “family Man” Barrett on drums and bass respectively, Junior Marvin and Al Anderson on lead guitar, Tyrone Downie and Earl “Wire” Lindo on keyboards, and Alvin “Seeco” Patterson on percussion. The I Threes, consisted of Bob Marley’s wife Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths.

Often, usually for marketing purposes, Bob Marley, The Wailers, and Bob Marley and the Wailers are used indiscriminately to refer to recordings actually made by separate entities.
