Bob Marley and DOA; Reggae Legend remembered, Punk Icons Drive On

Rebel Music means a Punky Reggae Party

Today marks the 27th anniversary of the passing of the world acclaimed reggae legend, Robert Nester Marley, popularly known as Bob Marley and known to his Rasta Brethren as Berhane Sellassie, or Light of the Trinity. Praise be to Jah, Give Thanks for Bob and all the musical saints and prophets for our lifetime. Peace and Blessings to the family, friends and fans of Bob globally.

Last night I had the pure pleasure of seeing DOA on their 30th Anniversary Tour, at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, with opening acts The 3-Tards and The Glass Assassins. Both opening acts blew the roof off the place, setting it up perfectly for the Vancouver punk pioneers.

With Randy Rampage back in the fold, DOA thrashes and crashes out their power rock as forcefully and as fast as they did in the late 70s and early 80s, and their influence on music and the world goes far beyond their sales numbers. Considered here to be with The Ramones, The Sex Pistols and The Clash among the four pillars of punk, DOA have always been the flavour of choice among underground hard core punk fans.

Long before bands like Green Day, Blink 182, Rage Against The Machine and Linkin Park popularized the modern punk style, DOA were driving across the globe playing concerts including social and environmental protests. They were the first punk band to play behind the Iron Curtain, Nirvana's first gig was opening for DOA and Kurt and Courtney even met at a DOA show!

DOA hit the stage with their usual wall-of-sound blast and mixed new tracks with time-proven anthems such as The Enemy, Disco Sucks and Fuck You to present an hour of the heaviest, most-fun music you will ever hear. 28 years ago I remember someone at the Cabana Room telling DOA's manager Ken Lester that they were having a "religious experience" watching DOA, and I am positive there were DOA newbies at the Show last night that now feel things deeper and understand music in a more powerful and profound way. Long live Joe Keithley and DOA, legends of rock!!!
