UK judge dismisses Bob Marley bass player lawsuit

May 15, 2006

LONDON (Reuters) – A UK judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit
filed by Bob Marley’s bass guitarist Aston “Family Man”
Barrett, who was seeking 60 million pounds ($113 million) in
unpaid royalties from Island Records and the Marley family.

Barrett, who has 52 children, had testified in London’s
High Court that he and his brother Carlton Barrett, a drummer
for the famous reggae band who was murdered in 1985, did not
receive much money following Marley’s death from cancer in
1981.

They played on numerous albums by Bob Marley and the
Wailers, including “Natty Dread,” “Rastaman Vibration” and
“Babylon by Bus.”
