BY MESFIN FEKADU, LOS ANGELES — At a celebration for Bob Marley’s 75th birthday, the late icon’s famous children gathered together to tell old stories about the reggae king and discussed keeping his legacy alive by passing the musical torch to their own children.

Bob Marley’s children, including Cedella Marley, Julian Marley and Rohan Marley, and several of his grandchildren held a pre-Grammy brunch Friday alongside Universal Music and Mastercard in Los Angeles.

The Jamaican singer's 75th birthday would have been Feb. 6.

He died of cancer in 1981, at age 36.
