Sportsman, Gary Bennett ( former Captain SAFC) shares his most memorable song and story with Mr Drayton’s Human Jukebox: Bob Marley- Redemption Song
Gary Bennett – Sportsman: Bob Marley- Redemption Song
When my wife was pregnant with my youngest child Andre Bennett it’s a song we would play to him in the womb especially when she was lying down relaxing. Funnily enough it’s his favourite song too.
If you listen to the words they have a lot of feeling. It’s true what Bob Marley sings about ‘emancipate yourself from mental slavery, nobody else but ourselves can free up our mind’. It’s got a lot of meaning.
It inspired me. Not just in life but also when I was playing sport to give me that fight to go on and try harder and I think that’s something that’s also related in the song.
