Bob Marley Lived here
Singer, lyricist and Rastafarian icon, Bob Marley lived here.
A heritage plaque commemorating the first London home of reggae legend Bob Marley was unveiled today.
The Jamaican-born star lived at 34 Ridgmount Gardens, Camden, for 2 months when he first came to the UK in 1972.
The plaque, describing Marley as a singer, lyricist and Rastafarian icon, was unveiled in October 2006.
Marley died from cancer in 1981 but still has millions of fans across the globe.
Ridgmount Road was the first of several British homes he lived in during 1972, the year Bob Marley and the Wailers signed to Island Records.
