Bob Marley died from complications of a skin cancer, melanoma, which he had contracted several years earlier.

In September 1980, a weakened Marley almost fainted onstage while performing in New York. The next day, he collapsed while jogging in Central Park. Marley was diagnosed with a brain tumor (a result of the untreated cancer in his toe) and given less than a month to live. Despite the grim news, Marley played one final show in Pittsburgh before being flown to Miami. There doctors verified that the singer had cancer in the brain, lung, and stomach.

On May 11, 1981, Bob Marley died at the age of 36.
