The life of reggae legend Bob Marley is set to be the subject of a new musical in New York's Broadway.

Ziggy Marley, son of the late singer, says the musical - which is hoped to hit the stage next year (04) - will trace Bob's life from growing up in Jamaica as a young boy, to his rise in becoming an international reggae star and local hero.

Ziggy says his mother RITA has been in meetings about the project.

He explains, "It's not something that's quite ready yet, but it is being planned for Broadway."
