its rather very sad that a brilliant talent has left and never been acknowledged.peter tosh was the greatest before his days,during his days and even after his days.he will forever remain as the greatest ever reggae personality.his words were so mesmerising that not even the so called legend,bob marley could even get any close to the great talent of the bush doctor.finally im waiting for the day that peters legacy will be made a topic of study in any public university in the whole wide world.peter we love you and may your soul continue to rest in perfect peace.
