Ziggy Marley - ACL Fest - September 16, 2007

From the crazy rain department... Ziggy Marley @ ACL Fest this Sunday, Sept 16th.

I wonder if it's going to rain during ACL Fest this year... that'll be fun... can you imagine all the wet girls frolicking in the mud?!? Things that make you go hmmm...

Bummer that the White Stripes pulled out of ACL Fest... citing medical reasons... hope all is well...

More info:

David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley (born October 17, 1968, Trenchtown) is a Grammy-winning Jamaican musician. He is the oldest son of Rita and Bob Marley1, the legendary roots reggae singer. His mother Rita called and baptised him David, but his father Bob nicknamed him "Ziggy" in reference to a marijuana cigarette.[1][2] An alternative explanation links the nickname to the David Bowie persona "Ziggy Stardust" and his eponymous 1972 album.[3] Born in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, Marley learned how to play guitar and drums from his father.

Ziggy had become politically active by this time, working with the United Nations and creating a record label called Ghetto Youths Crew. A solo album, Dragonfly was released on April 15, 2003.
