Now Playing

One of the gifts I gave Ash for his birthday was Marley, the Bob Marley documentary. Even in the first half an hour I'd learnt so much about him, the music of Jamaica where ska and reggae originated, and where Bob grew up in Trenchtown seeing music as his way out. I guess that old school passion is still flaming in modern ambitionists who don't use X Factor as a way to get to the top.

One of my favourite quotes ever was by Bob Marley - "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.' This is Trenchtown.

They say it's hard to speak,
They feel so strong to say we're weak.
