Bob Marley's former home base in London to get commemorative plaque

The house in Chelsea where Bob Marley lived for a year in 1977 while his band The Wailers finished their Exodus album is to get a blue commemorative plaque from English Heritage.
 
It was during his time in London that he referred to the city as his "second base" and he and his bandmates often played football at the nearby Battersea park.
 
The blue plaques panel called Marley a "cultural icon who blazed a trail for other black artists".
 
A blue plaque is a permanent sign installed in a public place to commemorate a link between that location and a famous person, event, or former building on the site, serving as a historical marker.
