LOS ANGELES, USA — It's Bob Marley Day in Los Angeles.


The City Council yesterday proclaimed the day in honour of the Jamaican reggae legend whose string of hits include I Shot the Sheriff and No Woman, No Cry.


Marley was 36 when he died of cancer in 1981 but his children Ziggy and Karen were on hand for the honour. With Councilman Joe Buscaino leading from the podium, they joined in singing a verse from Marley's Redemption Song.


Buscaino says Marley's music "brought people together in times of trouble."


The proclamation coincides with the DVD release of the documentary "Marley."


Ziggy Marley also is a noted musician and has a home in Los Angeles.
