The history of Reggae Music mainly revolves around three legends namely the late Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh (Bob Marley and The Wailers ). On Monday the 10th of April 2017, the only existing original member Bunny Wailer real name Neville O’Riley Livingston will officially open his own museum, a tribute to his life and legacy. This will also be the day the Jamaican born will be celebrating his 70th birthday.
With everything fully done and set, the museum is located at 10 Darley Crescent and it extends up to Trench Town in Kingston,Jamaica where the three lived and formed the band ‘Bob Marley and The Wailers ’ 1963. Bunny was the only founding member of this internationally celebrated Reggae band without a museum but all this has changed.
This follows a 3 minutes and a half viral video that shows Bunny Wailer himself at the museum showing the world and his fans what to expect come the grand opening in April and amongst the things were all his music accolades.
It is on record that on 30th of September 2015, Bunny was assaulted and told to leave his former colleague Bob Marley’s museum by a security guard as he went to pay a visit although we are not sure whether it’s one of the reasons he based on to set up his own.
The Wailers Band which was started by the three in 1963 is perhaps the most recognized band that made the transition through the early Jamaican popular music.
