Reggae music

Do you think the death of bob marley contributed to it not being more mainstream? Seems like it should be more popular than it is.

re: Reggae music
I think it gets redundant after a while, so it gets limited to certain settings where/when it's appropriate.

re: Reggae music
Ive wondered this a lot

It has to be a lack of authentic material

Everything else just gets labeled a rip off. Apparently you have to be FROM jamaica

re: Reggae music
I agree that it does get redundant but most reggae artists that make good money are not faking it and are actual rastafarians. I know of two bands in Baton Rouge (Henry Turner Jr. and also The ELEMENTS) that make decent bank but aren't rastafarians and fake the accent pretty good.

re: Reggae music
I really like reggae. I think its not more popular as a lot of it is really reptitive, and there is not a lot of diversity to the sound.

I prefer dub and dancehall but I still rock out the reggae frequently.
