“During his brief time on The Rolling Stones’ label, Peter Tosh shared the stage with Mick Jagger, showcasing the universal appeal of his music. Tosh’s message of empowerment and social justice continues to resonate today, exemplifying his vision of music as a “schoolroom of Awakening.”

“Additionally, Donald Kinsey, guitarist for Bob Marley and a collaborator on Tosh’s “Legalize It,” has declared April 20th as the official Peter Tosh Day, further cementing Tosh’s legacy in the annals of reggae history.

“Garnett Silk, a prominent figure in the roots-reggae movement, defied the trends of his time with his soulful melodies and spiritually charged lyrics. His songs, including “Kingly Character” and “Nothing Can Divide Us,” remain timeless classics, embodying the essence of reggae’s enduring appeal.

“As we come together to celebrate the lives and music of Peter Tosh and Garnett Silk, let us reflect on their profound impact and continue to uphold their legacy of love, unity, and social consciousness.
