From Ziggy: "To make a record is one thing and it's nice, but the live show is one of the most true expressions of the music that you can get. In a studio, you can do things and manufacture things. But when you do it live, this is where you prove what the music is. If you can't do it live, then it's not real. People just can't take away that energy of what it's like to hear the music in a live environment."
"The combination of his own inquisitiveness and the profound depth and influence of the Rastafari movement transformed Bob Marley into an artist who reshaped reggae music and the course of world history," says Carlyle McKetty, President of the Brooklyn, NY based Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music. "The intricate relationship between reggae and Rasta is seminal to understanding and preserving the reggae form and Bob Marley's keen understanding and internalization of the tenets of the Rastafari movement have yet to be adequately explored."

"Bob keeps coming in from the cold...as he said, "Dem a go tired fe see me face, can't get me out the race". Not only do people my age remain interested, but newer generations, a third and fourth generation, all come loving his message and still wearing his T-shirts and singing his songs at concerts."
- Mrs. Rita Marley
"Every Little Thing is my adaptation of one my favorite songs sung by my father. I kept the spirit of the lyrics but made some changes for younger readers. I am thrilled to introduce the spirit of Three Little Birds to a new generation and ensure they know that Every little thing is going to be all right." - Cedella Marley
