It's hard to imagine audiences who don't know much about the man sticking around for more than a few minutes of this. And they're the ones who need to know about him most of all.
people who don't know much about the man ??
he is perhaps the greatest musician to have ever walked the earth.....

Glad you included the "perhaps". Good as he was at what he did, I don't think he'd come in my top 100 as a musician, but that's a subjective thing anyway. As a cultural influence in certain quarters he was definitely significant. I can assure you an awful lot of people know next to nothing about him.

Who doesn't know who Bob Marley is?
Who's is actually going to see a movie called "Marley" with the poster with the face of a man that EVERYONE has seen ad say: That looks interesting. But who is Marley?
EVERYONE KNOWS WHO BOB MARLEY IS.

I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news, but he said people who "don't know much" about him. And yes, plenty of people don't know much about him.

Yes, a lot of people know of Bob Marley, but not many of those so-called fans know much about him or his music. Most self-professed Bob Marley fans are very ignorant not only about Marley's place in music history, but his place in the Wailers and his music as a whole.
There's much more to Bob Marley than the "Legend" compilation and much more to the Wailers than just Bob Marley.
Too many people think Marley is just a Jamaican John Lennon, when nothing more could be further from the truth.

knowing his name and that he's a musician doesn't mean you "know" anything about him

Exactly. There's far more to Bob Marley than the pop-compilation that is "Legend."
