Bunny Wailer was born Neville O’Riley Livingston on Apr 10th 1947 in Kingston, Jamaica. He grew up in the village of Nine Miles in St Ann’s. His friendship with Bob Marley began as toddlers. Both were from one parent family. Livingston was brought up by his father and Marley by his mother. The family’s moved in together in 1952. They had a daughter named Pearl Livingston.

In 1966 Bob Marley left the group to seek fortune in the US. The Wailers continued without Marley. The group was then reduced to a trio with the departure of Braithwaite, Green, and Kelso. However, since the core group was talented, they continued to flourish.

By 1973 The Wailers was the biggest reggae band in Jamaica. Their international breakthrough began with a three month trip to the UK. However, the 2nd leg of the tour to the US did not materialize. Livingston dropped out citing religious beliefs (Rastafari principles). The Wailers was no more. They, however, gave two official benefit concerts after their official breaking.
