Bob Marley was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994; in December 1999, his 1977 album “Exodus” was named Album of the Century by Time Magazine and his song “One Love” was designated Song of the Millennium by the BBC. Since its release in 1984, Marley’s “Legend” compilation has sold over 250,000 copies annually, according to Nielsen Sound Scan, and it is only the 17th album to exceed sales of 10 million copies since SoundScan began its tabulations in 1991.
Bob Marley’s music was never recognized with a Grammy nomination. Still, in 2001, he was bestowed The Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, an honor the Recording Academy gave “performers who, during their lifetimes, have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording.” That same year, Rebel Music, a feature-length documentary about Bob Marley’s life directed by Jeremy Marre, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Long Form Music Video Documentary. In 2001, Bob Marley was accorded the 2171st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame by the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in Hollywood, California. As a recipient of this distinction, Bob Marley joined musical legends including Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, and The Temptations. #BobMarley
