“Correction For Bob Marley” Entertainment Eyes June 1981


In the spring of 1981 many printed journals were bordering on, if not outright, exploitative as “So Much Things To Say” rumors about Bob Marley’s health spread far and wide whether largely inaccurate or not. A prime example is this New Jersey based June 1981 edition of Entertainment Eyes. They put Bob on the cover for a tiny one line ‘story’ then in haste quickly stapled a “With Deepest Sympathy CORRECTION for BOB MARLEY Story on Page 22” after his death on May 11th. LEGEND wouldn’t be out for a couple more years and kick BMW through the roof here but in ’81 concern for his well-being was already garnering more USA attention than normal.
