Allan Cole (2)

Real Name:
Allan Cole
Profile:
Allan "Skill" Cole is a former Jamaican soccer player. He was a close friend and road manager of Bob Marley, and was credited for co-writing a couple of Marley's tracks (e. g. "Screw Face", "War" & "Natty Dread"). It is possible that Marley used Cole's name as a pseudonym, as he often resorted to use his friends' names in order to evade onerous publishing contracts. However, Cole claimed in interviews that he helped Bob Marley write seven of his songs, including "Exodus".
