Between 1977 and 1980, Bob Marley is interviewed no less than three times by UK rock journalist John Tobler. The first occurred in London 1977 while Marley was there in exile after his assassination attempt in December 1976. The second was in Paris in June 1978 to play three consecutive nights. The third occurred during Marley’s last visit to London in July 1980 to play the Crystal Palace Concert Series.
These interviews have been officially released on CD by Road Goes On Forever Records (RGF Records), which is owned by John Tobler. They just recently dropped the price on these rare interviews to £6 plus postage. Please visit RGF to get a copy of the CD before they sell them out!
