Comments:
Peter Tosh (1944-87) was a close friend and colleague of Jamaican reggae artist Bob Marley (1945-81). Together with Bunny Wailer (born 1947), they formed the pioneering group The Wailers. Of this trio, Tosh was perhaps the most sombre, reflective and intense. He seems to capture the spirit of the biblical Sampson, the dreadlocked Nazirite whose mighty strength lay in his long hair. Like Sampson, Tosh was a formidable foe to his enemies, aptly nicknamed the 'Stepping Razor'. Tosh was brutally murdered during a burglary at his home on September 11 1987. Loosely based on a photograph.
