Today I share with you an interview from Bob’s last tour of the United States in September 1980.  He appeared on “Like It Is” with Gil Noble.  Gil Noble is an American television reporter and interviewer. He was the producer and host of New York City television station WABC-TV‘s weekly, “Like It Is”.  The program focused primarily on issues concerning African Americans and those within the African Diaspora.

Bob Marley and the Wailers were in NYC to play Madison Square Garden with The Commodores on September 19th and 20th, 1980.  Bob participated in many interviews during his stay in NYC, most of which have been shared on this blog.

Much like the UCLA 1979 interview, this is one of the most in-depth and detailed interviews that Marley participated in, lasting a little under 30 minutes.

The video footage of the interview has been shared in bits and pieces on the web.  I have included it here in its entirety. This has seen a significant upgrade since it first started circulating.  Enjoy!
