Peter Tosh(R.I.P.) has inspired many current roots reggae performers in their vocal style and lyrical content .To name but a few; Bushman and Anthony B who recognise his Rasta stance as a necessary approach in an awakening for equal rights and justice. Peter Tosh performed alongside the late great Robert “Nesta” Marley and the Wailers before political propaganda and manipulation tore the band apart in the mid to late seventies,although Peter’s wishes were at some point to also pursue a solo career with his lyrical message of African consciousness. Although his message was unsettling to the powers that be, Peter articulately and eloquently voiced it without fear of threat or intimidation,that inspired his legions of devote fans.
