April 10 is the birthday of Bunny Wailer, born this day in 1947.

In 1963, at the age of 16, he formed the Wailers with his friends Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.

The music that has flowed out of that confluence has been and continues to be a powerful force for consciousness, freedom, human dignity, and the elevation of the spirit present in every man and woman -- and against oppression, degradation, enslavement, and the denial of that same spirit.

Happy birthday to Bunny Wailer: respect.
