"That shot was the last photo I ever took of him," Morris says of this 1980 image. "He called me and said, 'You need to come over.' He was staying at an apartment in London. It was strange – as I walked in, he was on his own, and normally, Bob is never on his own. There were always people around, but this time it was just the two of us. Normally, he'd be jiving me about being a black kid from England, not from Jamaica: 'What are you doing hanging around all them punks,' you know? But this time, he was really quiet. When he was talking, it was like he was questioning his success and the things he had done. I'd never seen him like that before."
At some point, Morris says, Marley picked up a guitar and began strumming. "At the time, I didn't realize that he was playing me 'Redemption Song.' I was probably one of the first people to hear it."
Marley died of cancer the following year. "Most of the images you see him in, his locks have a bit of electricity, some vibrancy," Morris says. "But this time, it's like the locks have taken over, and his fingers and face are quite gaunt. It's quite sad. At the end, no one knew how ill he was."
