Babylon By Bus
By: Brian Jahn
They say Bob used this very bus in the 70’s to drive to gigs in Jamaica, pick up the kids from school and other daily tasks. The bus had been sitting here for years and has since been moved from this location, it now sits in the Bob Marley Culture Yard under a roofed structure. One morning we were in Trench Town shooting some photo’s for a CD project when I decided to do a kind of group portrait around the bus. I forget everyone who is in this picture (forgive me) but from what I remember it’s Ziggy Soul, Kiddus-I, Mikey, Massive Dread, Bobby, Simba, Delroy, Ferdie, Raphael and of course original Wailer’s guitarist Earl”Chinna”Smith.
Does anyone else think the bus should be restored back to its original state?
