Bob Marley is huge in Thailand. There are bars dedicated to him. There are bands who copy his style. There are singers who copy his looks.
“I have heard more Bob Marley here than I have heard anywhere else that I’ve traveled. In the car, at restaurants, on boats and naturally on the islands. I’ve even heard covers of Bob Marley songs,” says one traveler.
“I had a visitor [from Jamaica] a couple weeks ago and told them that you probably don’t hear as much Bob Marley on Jamaica as you do here,” tells another.
“Ban Bob Marley,” demands yet another who doesn’t like Bob Marley to begin with so let’s just ignore this bastard.
