Since this is V2 of our blog, we have decided to add a brand new feature. "Artist of the Month" will consist of an artist of our choosing and we will cover either careers accomplishments.  We saw that it being a brand new year, that it would only be fitting to have Bob Marley as our "Artist of the Month."  The reason that we feel he should be our "Artist of the Month" is mainly because his main philosophies and ways of life were pacifist.  As we usher in the New Year, we can all look back at 2007 and recount all that went on.  Bob Marley's views and ideas are exactly what the world needs for not only 2008, but forever.

Notable Accomplishments:
  • In 1976, Bob Marley and The Wailers Won Band of the Year from Rolling Stone
  • In June of 1978, Marley was awarded the Peace Medal of the Third World from the U.N.
  • In February of 1981, Marley was given the third highest honor in Jamaica by receiving the Jamaica Order of Merit
  • In March of 1994, Bob Marley was inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
  • In 1999, the album, Exodus, won album of the century by TIME Magazine
  • In February of 2001, Bob Marley earned a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.  He also was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award
  • In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Bob Marley #11 on their "100 Greatest Artists of All Time"
  • The BBC Named "One Love" as the Song of the Century
