✤ "Give Peace A Chance" (1969) was

performed with his newly-wed wife,

Yoko Ono, during a "Bed-In" protest,

honeymoon style; the couple knew

The above video and stillframe below show Bob Marley performing only two days after being shot alongside friends and family in his Hope Road home. Though wounded, Marley went through with the show, especially aware of the peaceful statement he would make.

Long after Smile Jamaica, Bob went on to perform with the Wailers at the One Love One Peace concert in Kingston, Jamaica in 1978, as pictured here. Previously, when asked why he had performed at Smile Jamaica despite his wounds, he replied, "The people who are trying to make this world worse aren't taking a day off. How can I?"

John & Yoko's first bed-in took place in Amsterdam, shown here; the video was recorded in Canada at their second set of bed-ins

As seen here in this uncredited photo from 1976, Bob Marley was known for his dreads and natural lifestyle, mostly due to his Rastafarian religion, prominent in Jamaica.
