Peter Tosh was not a man of peace. He was a revolutionary. “Peace,” he told the feverish 40,000-strong crowd at the famous One Love Peace Concert in 1978, is “the diploma you get in the cemetery”, written on your tombstone: “Rest in Peace!”
Tosh believed in action. Standing 6ft 4in in his black beret and often wielding a guitar shaped in the form of an M16 assault rifle, he was the most militant member of the world’s greatest reggae band, The Wailers. Next to him, Bob Marley looked like a mere pop star.
