Somewhat painful to hear Bob's "Three Little Birds" music being used in new Hyundai commercial. The idea being not to worry about the car breaking down.

Who actually makes these decisions for the family? Rita? Ziggy?

Saw that commercial the other day. Kind of sad to say the least, but still more tasteful that selling alchohol IMO...

To me it's kind of ironic hearing people complain about the commercialization of this tune because, when this song was released some 30+ years ago, I was complaining about the song as being a 'commercialization' of Bob Marley....

When I was a kid I played Marley on the turntable for my dads Vietnam vet/hippie friends who were of course already familiar. The discussion was of course political and when I pulled a selection from the album Kaya the consensus was that it was sellout crap. Kind of harsh in my book but if you hold a strict criteria I could see the disappointment. Needless to say people have been upset with Bob during his lifetime and his family after his passing.
I for one don't blame Stephen or Damian, I think they are blessed and I look forward to seeing them both.
