In memory of Bob Marley (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981), HangoutCollab‘s Matty James performs Jammin. We had him on Hangout Collab S01E02 when we were talking about Songwriting Process’ and when he went to perform a small section of his song in memory of his great music on his anniversary date of his death, he was instantly kicked out of the hangout LIVE. It was quite a bummer but we all ended up getting a laugh out of it in the end, he tried coming back but we are guessing Google didn’t let him back in because of it, even though he had rights to play it. He is planning on getting with the Marley Family about it to try to get things corrected because we all felt it was wrong to be kicked out because of it, but anyway. No worries…. Be Happy! Thats exactly what Bob would want us to all feel!
You say you know little about Bob and his uplifting Lord filled music?
