Rat Race: The Thirsty Fool

Recently I attended a concert tribute to Bob Marley and the Wailers (The One Love Project Show Band) and I just can't get the songs  out of my head. Day and night, I'm hearing the beat, the sound and the lyrics of that reggae music. The thing with Marley is it wasn't just about the [...]
