As lendas da música Bob Marley e John Lennon tiveram um encontro inesperado na Califórnia, revelou Bernie Taupin, colaborador de Elton John, no seu livro “Scattershot: Life, Music, Elton and Me”.

Taupin relembra a noite em que se encontrava com Lennon num bar perto do Roxy Theatre em West Hollywood, quando Marley e um grupo de pessoas se sentaram na sua mesa.

Bob Marley & The Wailers actuaram por diversas vezes no Roxy Theatre.

“Marley is diminutive by comparison to his compatriots, but by no means a lesser individual. It’s obvious he’s the engine, the focal point, the very eye of this mystical hurricane … It’s a surreal scene kicked up a notch when Marley reaches into his shoulder bag and produces a spliff the size of a baby’s arm.”

Seguiu-se um encontro repleto de cannabis e risos ininterruptos.

“I’ve been pretty stoned at several points in my life. In fact I once ingested half a block of opium on a night flight from New York to Barbados and spent two days in the airport because I had no idea where I was. This wasn’t like that. This was like when you hear about those people who are pronounced dead but they’re really still alive and inside they’re screaming and praying for a tear to appear in order to save them from a premature burial.”

“Frankly, in my state it was alarming, and quite honestly if Haile Selassie had floated into the room riding a lion it wouldn’t have been any less disturbing. The rest of the night is unrecountable for obvious reasons, and only the good Lord knows how we managed to wake up in our own beds.”

Lennon viria a ser assassinado a 8 de Dezembro de 1980, aos 40 anos. Enquanto Marley morreu a 11 de Maio de 1981, após uma batalha contra o cancro, com 36 anos.
