One of reggae’s most extraordinary stories, the life of Peter Tosh came to an end when he was brutally murdered in 1987. Now revered second only to Bob Marley among reggae audiences worldwide, Tosh was awarded the Order of Merit as Jamaica celebrated fifty years of independence. Set against a backdrop of 1970s Jamaica, Steppin’ Razor, the Life of Peter Tosh tells the stories behind such hits as “Legalize It,” “Equal Rights,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” and “Johnny B. Goode”; Tosh’s famous appearances at the 1978 One Love Peace Concert; and his now legendary adventures with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Tracing his recording career, we learn of his encounters with Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker and his volatile relationships with Bob Marley and Lee “Scratch” Perry.  We also see Tosh’s darker side revealed in tales of the singer’s fascination with the occult, and told in unprecedented detail is the story of his untimely and tragic demise.
