The highly anticipated Bob Marley tribute finally took place last night at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. I must admit I was disappointed.
The performance was started with Bruno Mars who was later joined on stage by Sting. Although the performance was awesome from a musical standpoint, it was more a showcase for these artists than a tribute to Bob…they weren’t even playing reggae!
The tribute was much better once Damian Marley came on stage and mash it up. Kudos to Ziggy and Rihanna as well. At the end of the day, I’m happy that the Grammys gave Bob Marley center stage but next time let Ziggy, Damian and other reggae artists lead the charge.
