Carrying the torch passed on by Bob Marley himself, original guitarist Al Anderson and original keyboardist and background singer Tyrone Downie have united along with a group of handpicked musicians to honor the history and integrity of Bob's music with The Original Wailers.
Al Anderson (guitar) first joined Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1973, going on to play with Bob until his untimely death in 1981. Al was an integral part of the Bob Marley & The Wailers sound, forever imprinting his guitar solos and production skills on the catalog that has sold more than 75 million records and touched so many around the world.
Tyrone Downie first joined Bob in the mid 70's as a keyboardist, background singer and producer. Tyrone's footprint on the music is unmistakable, and his attention to detail as a producer was also a big part of the Bob Marley & The Wailers sound and success. After Bob's death, Tyrone has stamped his passport in stints with Beenie Man, Black Uhuru, Buju Banton, Peter Tosh, Junior Reid, Tom Tom Club, Burning Spear and Steel Pulse to name a few.
