Outtakes: Where are you currently?
Ziggy Marley: I'm in St. Louis right now, on tour.
St. Louis? I heard that you were in California.
Ya, mon. I'm in St. Louis Obispo or something. I can't pronounce the name. I just go where the music takes me.
What happened to the Melody Makers? Are you guys still a group?
Well, you know, that's my two sisters and my brother. Everyone is kinda doing some kind of project right now, so we're working that out, but we'll play together again.
You just won a Grammy for your latest album. What do you think stands out the most about that disc?
I think the message of love is my religion is what stands out. They're the most important words that can be uttered to mankind. Just that idea and that concept it's very important to understand. We don't need to believe in false doctrines called religion. We are separating the people according to ancient beliefs.
Which of your father's messages do you think is most relevant in today's time?
Get up, stand up, definitely. Stand up for your rights; don't give up the fight. Because a lot of basic rights are being taken away because of this policy of fear. And you have to fight back.
What excites you in your spare time?
Right now, the sunshine excites me. And the wind is blowing, and that excites me too. I'm excited by simple things, by nature. I don't jump up and down for buzzes and shit like that.
How old are you now?
Umm, 250. Me count everything, past life, future life, and the right now life!
