Wikipedia : This day (September 11, 1987), in Jamaica, died Winston Hubert McIntosh a.k.a Peter Tosh, a Jamaican reggae musician.

Peter Tosh : He was the ultimate firebrand, speaking out against oppression around the world in both his songs and his public statements. He was a man who demonstrated the power of personal and artistic integrity, and pride and defiance in the face of authoritarian power.

@ The Talking Drum : Me just one time see a mon in the country play guitar and say ‘My that mon play geetar nice’. It just attract me so much that me just sat there taking it in for about a half-day and when him done-he was playin’ one tune for the whole half-day-he had hypnotized me so much that my eyes extracted everything he had done with his fingers. I picked up the guitar and played the tune he had just played with him showin’ me a t’ing.

@ : He often struggled in Jamaica with his group the Wailers (aka the Wailing Wailers – the group included Bunny Wailer and the world-renowned Bob Marley). Tosh joined them on a tour of England in 1972. This was to become his first step to world fame, as during this trip the group signed with Chris Blackwells’ Island Records.
