I was interested in the twelve tribes thing,
and it made me think about, the ring that ended up in the hands of bob Marley that was originally worn by his Imperial Magestys Haile Selassie I , it was proved to be the ring, when bob met with a rellative of Selassie, this is described in the book , CATCH A FIRE, so bob told the man ,ya kow sometimes this ring burn like fire,
it was interesting that towards the end of Marleys life, he was getting close to pass thru to the otherside, he was going to bestow the ring on to his son Ziggy, the Prophet t Gad was on a mission to obtain the ring from the Marleys, on hearing that the illness Bob had was life threatening seen, so the family where harrassed by the members of the twellve tribes on the location of the Lion ring, when i think it was Bobs mother, or Rita that pronounced that the ring had gone back to the hand of his magesty, in a criptc way being that the ring was encaced in the tomb at nine mile, out of the hands of all the thieves and parasites,
just an interessting story that came to mind, almost like a classic tale of adventure,
i was interested to see a continuation of the symbology of the lion ring in the recent stars of reggae, on reading an interview on Damien Marley in a mag that has a photo of him burning herbs and yes i he has a replica Lion ring,
and to see an artist by the name of Warrior King, with his own Lion ring,
has Ziggy Marley got himeself a lion ring too,
im not sure why im writing this other than the continuation of a legacy always relates to earthly symbols, and we know that spiritualiy is related to the leting go of material wares, there is always the symbols of history and cultural and religious significance, even in this time we live in
long live the Lion of Judah, he shall break every chain,

The ring was given to Bob as a present from Selassie's family. The significance came from Bob apparentley dreaming about the ring, and describing it in detail to others before been given it. Yeah, he said it burned sometimes. Dunno about incased in a tomb - Bob lies 6 feet up in the air in his coffin

Just thought I would pass on something I know about the ring story and the CATCH A FIRE book… when that book came out 1982 after Bob’s death I went out and got it and the first thing I did is check what it had two say about Twelve Tribes since Bob was a member.. It had a lot of negative things, but most Rasta books do,, and some unusual positive things to say about us… I’ll take up two them ..

1. In the Book Negative: It said Gad Man wanted this ring.. I asked Gadman about that ring in 1985 and he said he knew of no ring or wanted it..

2. In the Book Unusually positive: It said Gadman had got a letter from Haile Selassie with his blessing to form the Twelve Tribes… I asked Gadman about that and he told me never spoke to Haile Selassie or ment him or got a letter from him..

So after that I thought that if they are lying when they are bigging up Gadman in saying that he got a letter from Haile Selassie then I didn’t take much account of the rest..

I knew before the book came out that they would be down on Twelve Tribes because Rita Marley was not happy about the Twelve Tribes in control of the funeral (SEE VIDEO OF FUNERAL and book) as Bob was a member he left Twelve Tribes in control.

And just a note look at the photo of Bob Marley with the ring on,, look at the photo and see how big the ring is on his hand TO BIG!!!!! Many others have pointed this out… Haile Selassie was shorter then Bob and there are photos of his hands they are very small and had thin fingers and this ring is in no photos of his hands that I have seen… This may have been a royle ring put it couldn’t have fit on Haile Selassie hands.

I meet Haile Selassie grandson Prince Zara Yacob in England and Ethiopia I didn’t ask him about this ring thing,,, but few other bull shit storeys you hear in these so called RASTA Books,, VERY FEW SOUNDED true to him.

I toured with Judy Mowatt in 1990 in New Zealand and on the Bus we did talk about that Book all she had to say is she knew Rita didn’t like the Twelve Tribes but couldn’t understand why she lied about Gadman.

So LIKE JIMI HENDRIX SAID “ you can't believe everything you read and see now can you, so if you excuse me I must be on my way” :wave:

MAYBE FOUNDATIONSTEPPER IS RIGHT it did come from that thing he sent in..

Mikey: that ring is so big on Bob Marley's Hand no wonder it's lost now.. It fell off and this Guy in downtown Kingston was selling it.. He maybe still there and you can get one.. although there was only one ring on Bob's hand he seem to have lots of them for sell with a sign>> BOB MARLEY'S LION OF JUDAH RING..

someone better tell Rita Marley were they are.. :fire:
