Bob Marley & The Wailers

Bob Marley & The Wailers Bob Marley and the Wailers (BMW) was a Jamaican reggae band formed 1974 by Bob Marley (1945-1981) after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer left the prior band, The Wailers. The new band, BMW, consisted of Bob Marley himself as guitarist, song writer and lead singer, the 6-7 regular musicians in Wailers Band and the I Threes as backup female vocalists. It is the most prosperous reggae band ever with +75 million record sales, and also the most successful band from the Third World, known for songs like One Love, Is This Love, Natural Mystic, No Woman No Cry, Exodus and Buffalo Soldier.

The band included Carlton Barrett on drums – Aston "Family Man" Barrett bass – Junior Marvin and Al Anderson on lead guitar – Tyrone Downie and Earl "Wire" Lindo on keyboards – Alvin "Seeco" Patterson on percussion. The I Threes, consisted of Bob Marley's wife Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths.

Often, usually for marketing purposes, Bob Marleys name alone, or the name Bob Marley and the Wailers, are used indiscriminately to refer to recordings made before 1974, during reggae, rocksteady and ska eras, made by The Wailers (Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer (real name: Neville Livingston)) with different accompaniment musicians.
