On this day, thirty-one years ago, legendary reggae icon Peter Tosh was murdered in his house by a political puppet who claimed to be his friend in a so-called robbery.
Peter Tosh was known among friends and people in Kingston to be a generous man, giving away money he earned through music.

As a starting point to any true reggae fan, we recommend the movie about Peter Tosh’s life “Stepping Razor: Red X“.

As a tribute, a rare recording of Peter’s “Burial” song, enjoy:
