Why do you think the Bob Marley songs are still popular?
It is because they connect with people; when people are depressed, are feeling low they listen to songs such as Don't Worry About A Thing and it lifts them up, it gives people hope. There will always be problems in the world and people's lives and many people will always struggle to survive, but Bob's songs still have a meaning and they give people hope.

Check out the coverage from World-A-Reggae of The Wailers in Amsterdam! Below is an exclusive interview with Josh David Barrett and Junior Marvin along with a clip of The Wailers performance!
"It's been more than four decades since Bob Marley & the Wailers' inception and 36 years since the death of their founder and guiding star, but the band continues to spread the positive messages of reggae.
Guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey are acutely aware of the significance of their early days playing alongside one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th Century. "What I could feel from the music was that there was a very positive energy," Kinsey says. "It was a different message in the music, and it was a different rhythm."
He still sounds giddy when he speaks of those days. His breath wavers and his voice pitches up with excitement as memories flood back. "It was an event — to come and to feel that... I tell people that for me, every time I hit the stage, it felt like a revival."
Junior Marvin recalls feeling that the Wailers had invented a new sound, but he's careful to acknowledge the influences. "The history of Jamaican music comes from British church music. Back in the slavery times, [slaves] were only allowed to sing gospel songs, and they weren't allowed to play the drums because people were afraid that they might be sending messages to each other and revolt."
"Who would ever think that I would be writing these words, let alone telling the tale that is unfolding.
Steven, Stevie, Max, Steven Max… Steven Max Stern. The little boy who dreamed to create music since childhood, who never gave up on this hobby despite the trials and tribulations we ALL face in life, on Sunday the 9th of April, 2017, recorded “Jah Light” with The Wailers, one of the many songs he has written over time, this one 25 years ago, inspired by one of his favorite bands, Bob Marley and The Wailers.
Like ‘the little engine that could’, traveling from South Africa, to Israel, to Wisconsin, to New York, to Indiana, to New Orleans, to Virginia, to Kansas, to California, to Israel, to Miami and many places in between… He has never given up the fight.
In November 2014, Steven was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 lung cancer. This is no longer a secret. He talks about it publicly, has a blog, has written an online book, presented to a class at a University, jokes about it, cries about it, and deals with it 24 hours a day. But mostly, tries to ignore it and the ‘job’ associated with it, so he can live life as fully as possible.
That is what this is all about. The miracle of embracing life, the gift we’ve been given, despite all circumstances and odds. To take what we have been given and make the best of it."
