Charles mattocks aka the poor chef as seen on such shows as the today show and Bonnie hunt will be joined by the Neville garrick, Neville was not only a friend to the late regae legend Bob marley but also designed a few of his album cover such as rasta man vibration and exodus, he was with bob at some of his most amazing times,we will talk about some of his memories. When Neville Garrick returned to his native Kingston in 1973, after earning a Graphic Arts degree from UCLA, he began working as the art director at the Jamaica Daily News. One of his earliest assignments was to cover a Marvin Gaye concert at the Carib Theater in Kingston. The Wailers were the opening act and stole the show. Garrick met Marley at a post-show press party and soon the two became close friends. Garrick, eventually left the newspaper after Marley put it to him directly: “Why don’t you come work for Rasta?” Garrick joined Marley in his crusade, touring with the Wailers and concentrating his talents on the visual side of things. He started by designing labels for Tuff Gong Records and eventually went on to design many of the Bob Marley and the Wailers album covers including Rastaman Vibration and Exodus. He became responsible for the backdrops and lighting for live shows, even joining in on percussion when the opportunity arose. The close friendship endured to the end. After Bob's passing, Garrick became more and more involved in preserving the Marley legacy. He designed a new addition to the Bob Marley Museum at 56 Hope Road in Kingston and served as executive director of the Bob Marley Foundation until 1996.
