So who else went to college and had to endure the trustafarian, nearly always a whey faced Little Lord Fauntleroy clone who decided after years of getting a good kicking every break time round the back of the sports hall to reinvent themselves once they finished their A-levels and started their first day at Uni with a head full of dreadlocks, telling their tutors, ‘easy now’ and were always had over by the local dealer selling them a combination of left over dried up oregano, the contents of a teabag contents and whatever dust was swept off the library top shelf telling them it was top gear! Well they’ll have no idea of who Bob Marley was. A musician who bought reggae into the mainstream before he was tragically murdered. Well its a bio-pic that’s been a long time in the making but we now finally have a fist look at the Bob Marley One Love trailer
