Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh (October 18, 1944 – September 11, 1987) was a reggae pioneer and a trailblazing Rastafari. Born Winston Hubert McIntosh, young Peter grew up in Trenchtown, a slum within the Jamaican capital, Kingston. His short-fuse temper usually kept him in trouble, earning him the nickname Stepping Razor, after a song written by Joe Higgs, an early mentor. He began to sing and learn guitar at a young age, inspired by the American stations he could pick up on his radio.
