Description

Upon departing The Wailers, Peter Tosh embarked on a highly successful solo career that included a string of self-produced internationally successful albums and world tours. With these, he became the world’s second-biggest-ever reggae star, and its biggest after Bob Marley’s death. Regrettably, Peter’s career and life would also be cut short when aged forty-three he was shot by a gunman – said to have been a childhood friend – during a home invasion robbery on September 11, 1987. In his post-Wailers career, he released over 50 singles and seven studio albums between 1975 and 1987, plus several more live albums.
