Bob Marley shot dead, 1976

This article appeared in several U.S. newspapers on December 5, 1976.

On 3 December 1976, two days before Smile Jamaica, a free concert organized by the Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley in an attempt to ease tension between two warring political groups, Marley, his wife, and manager Don Taylor were wounded in an assault by unknown gunmen inside Marley’s home. Taylor and Marley’s wife sustained serious injuries, but later made full recoveries. Bob Marley received minor wounds in the chest and arm.

Check Marley’s stunning performance at the Smile Jamaica concert:

While the headline states that Marley was killed, the article itself states that he was wounded.  Very strange…
