from Uncovering the Cover | Published 5/11/2020

How many artists have defined a generation? The Who, Madonna, the Spice Girls, Lady Gaga? How many of them have defined a music genre? Rolling Stones, Bee Gees, Nirvana, Britney Spears? How many artists have defined music history? The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Run-DMC, Jimmy Hendrix? But… how many artists have defined HISTORY OVERALL? Bob Dylan, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon? And what about Bob Marley. This episode we’re uncovering the cover of a song that put reggae on the spotlight and helped spread the message of a mega star, a star that still shines bright today. 

Welcome to Uncovering the Cover, the podcast where we tell the stories of the songs that have captured our imagination… throughout several generations. For this episode, we're reliving the career of one of the most influential artists, activists, and human beings in history, who passed 39 years ago, away this week -today, actually, the day we’re releasing the episode-.

This is Uncovering the Cover: I Shot The Sheriff, commemorating the 39th anniversary of the death of Bob Marley.
