[Read by Cary Hite]
The life of Peter Tosh, ''rude boy,'' founding member of The Wailers, and a compelling recording artist in his own right, is one of reggae's most extraordinary stories. Tosh was an abrasive man who would eventually fall victim to his own uncompromising personality, ultra-radical politics, and a fearsome gangster reputation. In this first ever biography, Tosh's personal musical odyssey is explored in detail as he strove to emerge from the shadow of Bob Marley. Tosh's darker side is also revealed, including a notorious standoff with Keith Richards. Here are the women, the drugs, and the story behind Legalise It, Tosh's famous early music plea for the decriminalization of marijuana. One year after Tosh was murdered in a gunfight at his own home in 1987, his album, No Nuclear War, won the Grammy award for best reggae album.
