Peter Tosh – Bob Marley’s evil clone

by

He was part of the Wailers, together with Bob Marley, but had a really bad temper, which led to his departure for a solo career. He fought many causes, especially in pro-black questions. Whilst his former band mate Bob Marley became world renowned for his uplifting but universally relevant spiritualism, Tosh was always more interested in catering to the more militant pan-Africanists of the world.

The year after his departure from the Wailers he released Legalize It, a record heavily promoting Rastafarian issues, most notably the use of marijuana to which the title refers. To this day the song “Legalize It” is regarded as an anthem for many promoters of marijuana legalization.

Johnny be good
