Did you know that Reggae music icon Bob Marley never won a Grammy Award?
Despite garnering worldwide attention for his contributions to both Reggae music and general popular culture, Marley never won a competitive Grammy. However, he was honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 (20 years after his death).
Ironically, several of Grammy’s sons are multiple Grammy winners. For instance, Ziggy Marley has won the Best Reggae Album trophy on 4 separate occasions (the award was established 4 years after his father’s death), Damian Marley has 3 awards in various fields and Stephen Marley has 5 to his name.
