Peter Tosh part one, the early years.

Posted by rooschrock on May 7, 2009

peter-tosh-pic-1Peter Tosh(October 19, 1944-September 11, 1987), originally named Winston Hubert McIntosh was born in Bellmont, Westmoreland, Jamaica and grew up in the ghetto, known as Trenchtown. He learned the guitar by listening to American radio stations. Peter took vocal lessons, as a youngster, with Joe Higgs, who introduced Tosh to Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer. The three played day and night perfecting their vocal sound and harmonies. Higgs not only helped the three harmonize, but was also credited with teaching Bob Marley to play guitar. In 1962, he drove the formation of “The Wailing Wailers” centered around his magnificent trio, by adding Beverley Kelso, Cherry Smith, and Junior Braithwaite. Their first single, “Simmer Down” became a huge hit, of ska sound, among Jamaicans, as well as others until Junior, Beverley, and Cherry left the band, leaving the core three to look for others to fill the rhythmic needs.
