ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha the last one is awesome.like how the sht do you get that wrong?and im going to pretend the artist that tattooed that one him totally caught that & just didnt say anything,laughing in his head the whole time.i want to be there when someone finally says,’hey,you know thats jimi hendrix right?’
Yeah, the last one, I had no idea. Thanks, baby. I would think if I got a tattoo, the first thing I would do is a spell check. The second thing I would do, is make sure something that is going to be apart of me for the rest of my life makes sense.
I’ve heard of both (and have never been a fan of their music, especially Hendrix), but wouldn’t have known a picture of either. I assumed the tattoo mixed up Bob and Ziggy Marley until I read the comments. Or that it was Eddie Murphy Raw.
I’m with you Brah…. Who is Bob Marley? Is he like from history or something? WHo needs to no about stupid shit like that? Some dood axed me if I even new about Nelson Mandela? I axed who he plays for?
He said he dont play nothing, that he was like from Africa or something and let all the slaves go?
Who cares, that is in the past with Bob Marley, who needs to even no about history???
The dood said googel it, and I told him to go fuk himself, cuz i dont no wat he ment…. wats a googel?
again – people don’t know the difference between jimi hendrix and bob marley = school holidays. damn the school holidays!
i’m not a fan of either, but one is known as the best guitarist of all time, the other is the best-selling reggae artist of all time. you have to either be 10, or have your head up your ass to not know anything about them. or just not be that interested in music, i suppose.
guys – they both kind of look like justin bieber, but taller, darker skin-tone, more muscular, more heterosexual, and their music has instruments in it. does that help you junior johns out a little…?
Zoned, are those songs? In which case I have not heard them. And sidneybunny, I am not messing with any body. I haven’t heard Bob Marley, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, and plenty others that are supposed to be awesome. I also don’t like the Beatles. And to shake things up a bit, I have never seen The Godfather.
This made me register. Never heard Bob Marley? You must have lived under a rock, or same place Dan Fargis does….
Ever heard of Jamming? Bob Marley wrote it, recorded it but Stevie Wonder made a cover. Same with I shot the Sheriff.
sidneybunny, I am 16. For some reason, I haven’t gotten around tho listening to those artists. The funny thing is, I own their albums. Like, their actual record pressings dating as far back as the ’60s (with the exception of Bob Marley). I just don’t have a record player.
Okay – Bob Marley – No woman no cry, Jamming, Stir it up, Buffalo Soldiers… ring any bells?
Iddjit: Nelson Mandela is still alive so he’s not really “history”. He was imprisoned for speaking out for the black man in a white ruled country – for 27 years and THEN – he became President of South Africa – pretty cool or what!!!
Iddjit – Google is the best fun. Just open a fresh window while you’re on line and that box in the middle is the Google portal to wondrous things!
Type in the artist or the subject you want to know about and hit Return… presto – loads of choices. The uTube links are best for music.
Brah: You can listen to anyone you want – for free. Just do it! Most of that music stands the test of time. You won’t regret it.
Obviously there’s no obligation on people to listen to old classics like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley and Eric Clapton….but I can’t help but feel that it would be a terrible loss if people stopped listening to them entirely some day. One observation I have made throughout my life is that younger people who have been exposed to this genre just seem to be cooler in some inexplicable way….
Anyway, look give it a go if you get a chance, they are legends for a reason. But if you’re not inclined, then carry on with your Biebers and Rihannas and Jay-Zs and whatever.
Now before we light, we must have respect for those who smoke, and those who don’t smoke, and we say; Excuse me while I light this spliff (spliff), ohhh jah I got to take a lift (lift). From reality I just can’t drift (drift), that’s why I’m staying here with this… Spliff, and now we ready to light.
Cinnebar, none of those songs are ringing a bell. And I do intend on listening to classic rock artists, as I own many of their records, but I’m not rushing it. Besides, it’ll probably be better to listen to them on a record.
It’s all well and good if you don’t know who Bob Marley/Jimi Hendrix are, especially if you were born in the last 20 years. I can assure you that I wouldn’t be able to point out ‘The Big Bopper’ in a photo line up.
But for fucks sake, if you’re going to get a tattoo tribute of one of them, then there’s an issue…
i’m sure i knew who bob marley and jimi hendrix were when i was about 8. ok, just to be sure i’m not exaggerating, 12. i definitely knew at 12. and my parents weren’t into either. or music as a whole, for that matter.
Even if one hasn’t listened to Bob Marley (or Jimi Hendrix, for that matter…however, I don’t know how that’s possible), I don’t know how they couldn’t possibly know what he looks like. Everywhere I go there is a poster or a t-shirt with his face on it.
Actually Britt16, there is a ton of fantastic music coming out still. More bands than ever are coming out and the talent being shown by some of the youth is incredible, but… with the good comes the bad and unfortunately main stream society seems to favor the flavour of the week with little or no talent, and these young talented acts get lost in the heaps of shit coming out.
If you look, you can still find some impressive stuff.
I can understand kids not knowing who Marley, hendrix, etc. are. If you listen to popular comercial radio all you are gonna get is “music” that is made only in the last,say, 5 years.
If you have an appreciation of music and play an insrument you search for other types of music or hang out with people of like mind. Go to an open mic night and hear some really cool stuff that will maybe never get airplay but is music made by musicians, not computer nerds.
I was never a fan of Marley or hendrix but then i never really smoked pot.
I totally agree with you about not all great music being on the radio. One of my favorite bands through college was a band that went to my university who couldn’t break into the industry. That being said, there are certain artists that you’d imagine kids would at least be familiar with – between commercials and movies, how many times should they have caught a song by one of the acts mentioned.
This made me register too. You’re all missing the point… It doesn’t matter if young people these days or anyone else hasnt heard of marley/hendrix… The point is that someone who, it seems, must love marley enough to want a permenant tribute SHOULD know what his face looks like!
I agree that many who claim they haven’t listened intentionally to Hendrix or Marley have probably been exposed to them without knowing who it is at one time or another (Wayne’s World with foxey lady….commercials, I am legend). And their faces are everywhere now, I’ve seen both on a buttload of tshirts. I, for one, remain opinionated that he is the god of guitar. I’m also partial to led zep and frank zappa, but Hendrix all the way
okay,i consider myself to pretty young,21,but wth,ive def listened to and know who,well,bob marley,jimi hendrix and every other band/musician you guys have mentioned are…..i call bad parenting if a kid doesnt know who pink floyd is…im weirded out that someone doesnt know bob marley…..
Just so we can clarify. This tattoo was done at the shop i work at. Everyone knew that it was a picture of Jimi Hendrix and we meant to put the banner saying Bob Marley. It was a joke for this specific purpose. The uproar on all of our facebooks and the shops page was insane haha.. thank you guys for making this the most amazing tattoo.
I was totally about to post about the bob marley/hendrix tribute. So glad everyone knew and it was a joke! holy shit, if not. Still kinda sucks to have that on you, and have people say dumb shit to you all day about it…that would get really really old. you could definitely fuck with them, but it would get annoying after a while. And to anyone that doesnt know who either of these musicians are…well…sad for you.
