interview - how bob composed

"What's the reason why the Bob Marley and the Wailers music is so impressing?"
"Because when we write we write from a kind of high universal kind of plain of ideas, you know. From a high platonic plain of ideas."
Listen to Earl Wia Lindo! (150 K)

"We are like,- we can feel,- you know, you get that universal, consciousness you can feel the whole world in your consciousness, mind."
Listen to Earl Wia Lindo! (85 K)

"I think, Bob is very gifted that way, you know what I mean. Even when we feel like we are equally as high as he is it's like, you know, (looking down on the ground) it's like he is just looking down here like that, still!"
Listen to Earl Wia Lindo! (135 K)

"It seems I'm always there when the ideas, when Bob has his ideas, you know when, (getting excited) like a brainstorm, when he gets that brainstorm idea: BOOM !!! Like that, you know. I always happen to be there."
Listen to Earl Wia Lindo! (170 K)

"Where did Bob compose? In the studio or at home...?"
"On the road. On the road a lot. A lot of compositions, like: MEN SEE THEIR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS CRUMBLE IN FRONT OF THEIR FACE AND ALL THEIR WICKED INTENTIONS TO DESTROY THE HUMAN RACE*. You know them kind of lyrics. I heard him compose that in Brussels!"
(*Lyrics form the song "Chant down Babylon" on the album "Confrontation")
