George and Bob Marley was taken on July 13, 1975, backstage at the Roxy Theatre,Los Angeles, California.
Having heard that George was a fan of Marley’s music, the president of Island Records, Charley Nuccio, invited George to the show to meet Marley. When told that George Harrison was coming backstage, Marley visibly lit up and said, “Ras Beatle!!” Here’s the only other photos from this meeting taken by Kim Gottlieb Walker….
By all accounts, they had a short five minute conversation and a mutual respect and admiration for each other. Here’s a photo of George from that night with his future wife Olivia Arias.
