Bob Marley’s Son Damian and His Dreadlocks

July 24, 2010

Damian Marley, Son of Reggae Musician Bob Marley, with His DreadlocksWant to get noticed? Try this. We’re not sure if these are hair extensions, a dread perm or Mother Nature at work, but Damian Marley, son of famed Rastafarian and reggae musician Bob Marley, has the longest dreadlocks we’ve ever seen. Is it possible to grow dreads this long by age 32? “Junior Gong,” as he’s known, is shown here in London on Tuesday. How does one sit down gracefully without pulling out hair? Sleeping? That must be a challenge. Driving? Could the hair become entangled in brakes and gear shifts? Who knows? All sorts of difficulties spring to mind. It seems like it would feel so liberating to go snip, snip, snip.

Damian is the youngest son of world music pioneer Bob Marley. (One of 13 siblings, he was two when “Tuff Gong,” as Bob Marley was also known, died at age 36 from melanoma.)

Read about eye jewelry. It’s just as weird.
