The Productization of Bob Marley is one of the saddest moments in his career. Bob Marley has become Babylon. I guess even revolutionaries get consumerized… See my 2009 post on the monetization of Bob Marley. The reality is worse than I feared.
R.I.P. Bob! Even though your family seems to have sold you out, your music will do the heavy lifting – dreader than dread.

Are we going to see Marley toilet seats and diapers?
Here comes Marley Cola, extra sharp.
Or: Marley chewing gum.
Or: Marley underwear:
Or: Marley real estate.
Or: Marley leisure wear.
Or: Marley golf clubs.

Shame on you Rita and Ziggy. Shame.
This could kill Bob for real.
