In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson's stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, and Three O'Clock Road Block that first alerted rock fans to The Wailers music. Anderson's musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the platinum award winning albums Live at the Lyceum, Babylon by Bus and ten times platinum album Legend. The Original Wailers received their own Grammy Nomination in 2013 for their album Miracle making it Anderson's second Grammy nomination.


Al Anderson is the sole member of the Bob Marley & The Wailers mid-1970s line-up in The Original Wailers. The Original Wailers also include Chet Samuel (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Omar Lopez (Bass Guitar), Howard Smith (Drums) and Noel Aiken (Keyboards/Organ) who continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers music.
