Peter Tosh: He's The Toughest

Barbara Charone, Creem, March 1979

If anybody can bring reggae music to the rest of the world, especially America, then Peter's the one to do it along with Bob Marley. After all, we were second to the Beatles. You need a door opener and then you need the serious stuff. I'm not saying Marley isn't serious. It's just that Peter has chosen his scene, his band and his music very carefully. And he's done an amazing job putting it all together.
– Keith Richards
