    Gasp! Several of late reggae legend Bob Marley's master recordings were destroyed in his wife's studio's complex in Ghana. Tapes, recordings and footage from performances were reportedly lost in the blaze. There are reports suggesting that an electrical issue caused the fire.

    What a tragic loss of classic material. Let's hope there was no human error involved.

    Should classic recordings be housed in some sort of fireproof museum?
