Bob with and Livingston started to play music when they were at school. Marley left Nine Miles when he was 12 years old with his mother for Trench Town in Kingston. In Trench Town, he met Livingston again and they started to make a music with Joe Higgs. (Joe Higgs was a local singer), after Bob met Peter Mclntosh (Later renamed as used the name Peter Tosh) who had musical ambitions.
