Peter Tosh – 1 Minute Jamaican Music Biography


Peter [McIn] Tosh began releasing solo records well before he and Bunny Wailer decided to split from Bob Marley and the Wailers. The eldest of the original vocal trio, Peter was regarded by many as an angry rebel and his ongoing examination of his Black roots was an inspiration to a whole heap of people. His ongoing ‘run-ins’ with the authorities were legendary. His never ceasing proclamation of HERB as a necessary ingredient for a better life and state of mind is well documented. Sept. 11, 1987 Peter was murdered at his home in St. Andrew, Jamaica. The quality of his righteous and often angry works has seldom been equalled.
