Bob died 30 Years Ago – But Danny Did NOT Do It!

30 years ago today Bob Marley died of  acral lentiginous melanoma.  ALM is a form of skin cancer that unlike other melanomas is not related to exposure to sun light.

During a charity football match in 1977 Danny Baker (a fine broadcaster and music lover) trod on BM’s toe, breaking it.  The ALM was first contracted on the same foot broken by Danny.  However, the ALM was contracted BEFORE the football match.

In other words, DANNY BAKER IS INNOCENT!  GET OFF HIS CASE!
