Bob Marley

In between his now-legendary performances at the Roxy Theater on the Sunset Strip, Marley prepared for a week of interviews with the American press in his villa at the Sunset Marquis. David Coverdale recalls (somewhat vaguely) spending time with Marley: "Bob and I literally tripped over each other somewhere on the grounds and he invited me to his villa. Family Man Aston [Barrett] was there and some of the very fine Wailers. They were most impressed that Tommy Bolin, God bless his memory, and I actually walked out of the villa without falling down. We were stoned for days!"
