Bob Marley was born on Feb. 6, 1945, in St. Ann Parish, Jamaica. The reggae pioneer made music that was loved around the world and would have been in 75 in 2020.
In 1976, Marley survived an assassination attempt at his home in Jamaica. Marley was shot in the chest and left arm but still performed a free concert in Kingston, Jamaica, two days later.
The concert was called "Smile Jamaica," and it was organized by Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley to ease tensions between warring political parties in Jamaica.
