Julian & Stephen Marley | 10.23 | IL
Julian continues to forge his own musical identity with a strong show featuring Stephen in Chicago...

Yeah....Julian is the only Marley kid stepping out from Papa Bob's shadow. If you want a watered down version of Bob....then you got Stephen Marley. If you want bad music made by a Marley who thinks he can step out of the shadow of Bob, then check out Ziggy. Nuff said.

^ maybe you need to shut up and take the music for what it is and not what the background of it is.

I think that Bob would be very happy to see his sons riding his coat tails or making music of their own.

actually, all these dudes are crunk for what they do. whoever said ziggy is weak has lost their mind, ziggy is fire. damien is a different story altogether and is so fuckin CRUNK in his own right (check out new collaboration album with Nas, entitled Distant Relatives). Julian is definitely the jam and Stephen may be the closest re-enactment of papa smurf. long live the marleys, all crunk as fuck.

None of the Marley's are really ALL that. If you really dig Ziggy's recent work....you need to dig deeper into the world of reggae. Because none of Bob's son's would be all that well-known had they not had Bob as dad. Sorry to be a downer, but it is true. Go and check out Burning Spear or Toots while they are still around....THAT'S the real deal.

how can you hate on any of the marleys? If you're looking for good reggae listen to Mishka.

Thanks, Zach,

Actually, I missed my first day in 7 years of the NO Jazz Fest this year. My son, born on 4.26.2009, broke a good run. Now, we will start our own new run. I have not been to many shows after.

My son sparked thoughts that lead to my comment. As a mediocre guitar player, my son can have everything from me. However, I expect passes to his shows.
