Website

In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the soft spoken, American-born Al Anderson, It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman No Cry Dem Belly Full and Curfew (Three O’ Clock Road Block) that first alerted rock fans to The Wailers music. Al has also played with the legendary Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad,Inner Circle Traffic and Ben Harper.

Al Anderson is the sole member of the Wailers mid-1970s line-up in The Original Wailers. The reformed configuration includes Desi Hyson (Vocals/Keyboards), Steve Samuels (Bass Guitar), Paapa Nyarkoh (Drums) and Marty Batista (Keyboards and Organ) that carry forward the true spirit and realities of the original music and the message of “One Love”.
