The Marley Brothers

Studio 360

Bob Marley was the undisputed king of reggae music. When he died of cancer in 1981 he was just 36 years old. Marley left behind many songs, a legion of adoring fans, and quite a few talented children to carry on his legacy. This summer, for the first time ever, five of Marley's sons --- Ziggy, Stephen, Julian, KyMani and Damian --- are paying tribute to their father with the Bob Marley Roots, Rock Reggae Festival. Trey Kay met up with the brothers at a show in Virginia.
