KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Roger Steffens says he's shown his independent film, "The Life of Bob Marley," to thousands around the world, but never in Marley's homeland of Jamaica. He'll present the 80-minute video on June 29 during International Reggae Day celebrations in Kingston. "It feels good to give something back to Jamaica after all she has given me," said New York-born Steffens, who's researched Jamaican music for more than 30 years. His collection of reggae memorabilia takes up six rooms and the garage of his Los Angeles home. Steffens has written extensively on the history of Jamaican music and Marley's band, the Wailers, and is the co-author of the biography, "Bob Marley: Spirit Dancer." Marley died of brain cancer in 1981 at age 36.
