Recognized throughout the world as the architect of reggae, Â³Family ManÂ²
created a music genre that rose to world domination when he teamed up with
Bob Marley as his bassist and musical director to form Bob Marley and the
Wailers. Â³Family ManÂ² and his band, The Wailers, continue to tour the world
leaving no doubt that the musical legacy he and Bob Marley created would
Â³Family ManÂ² has pushed the limits of The Wailers, by assembling original
band members that toured with Bob Marley making this reunion an
unprecedented musical event.
The name Wailers first applied to groups led by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and
Bunny Livingston in the mid-sixties, when ska was the ruling sound in
Jamaican music. By the end of the decade this triumvirate had teamed up
with the Barrett brothers and begun to dominate the early reggae scene,
recording untold hits for producer Lee Â³ScratchÂ² Perry. After signing to
Island Records in 1971, the name Wailers referred to Bob MarleyÂ¹s band.
When Peter and Bunny left the group two years later, the position of musical
director was officially passed onto Aston Â³Family ManÂ² Barrett and his late
brother Carlton, who died in 1987. Bob Marley and The Wailers would then go
on to break musical history by selling well over 250 million records
worldwide. Clearly, Â³Family ManÂ² is the sole beneficiary of The WailersÂ¹
mantle and whilst other long-standing members still record and tour with the
band, it is MarleyÂ¹s former bassist and musical arranger, Â³Family ManÂ², who
continues to spread his musical legacy. The lead singer is former City Heat
vocalist Gary Â³NestaÂ² Pine, who is widely regarded as The WailersÂ¹ best
front man since the late, great Bob himself.
In summary, The Wailers Band remains the worldÂ¹s ultimate roots rock reggae
outfit. No other aggregation can match them for either the depth or quality
of their hit songs, or their widespread appeal. The cap still fits, and
yes, the crowd still wants more.
