Before Their Time

What if Bob Marley was still alive? (He’d be 72 now.) What would his music be like?

How about Jimi Hendrix? Would he still be on tour as an “oldies” act? (Jimmy Hendrix would be 75 today.) What about Kirk Cobain? Would he still be married to Courtney love and in Nirvana? (Cobain would be 50 years-old.)

I do think Bob Marley would be relevant today, making music with meaning. Jimi Hendrix would remain a headliner and all those people he influenced would celebrate him. Kirk Cobain . . . I think he would be a solo artist playing mellower music that matters. (Maybe he would join the Foo Fighters on stage from time to time.)
