After the death of Bob Marley in 1981, the Wailers Band was led by Aston Barrett and Junior Marvin. In 2008 former Wailers Al Anderson and Junior Marvin formed The Original Wailers, with the latter departing in 2011.

In 2015, Familyman Barrett began the process of reuniting past members of the Wailers.

Junior Marvin

Born in Jamaica, Marvin moved to London as a child, where his love of both acting and music was nurtured. He quickly earned a reputation as an innovative and expressive blues/rock guitarist. In England he played with bands such as Herbie Goins & The Nighttimers, Blue Ace Unit and White Rabbit.

He appeared in the Beatles' film 'Help', which was followed by a number of other television appearances.

Marvin met Bob Marley on February 14, 1977 and joined Bob Marley and The Wailers. After the death of Bob Marley in 1981, Marvin along with the remaining Wailers members formed The Wailers Band.
