On Friday, Apr. 20 (how apt), the new film documentary Marley on reggae superstar Bob Marley was released across most of the U.S.

Kenyon alumnus David Meerman Scott ’83 had an integral role in its conception.

On September 23, 1980, then Kenyon sophomore Scott traveled to Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, PN to attend what would be Bob Marley’s last show. Scott was the only audience member to take pictures of the concert.

Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald read in an online Amazon CD review that Scott had pictures of the concert, and contacted him about using the photos.

An added bonus? Scott received credit in the film.
