Song Of The Day: Peter Tosh & Mick Jagger – “Don’t Look Back” (1978)

On this day in 1987, Peter Tosh was murdered in a brutal home invasion at his home in Jamaica. Tosh was one of the founders of Reggae. In the mid 1960s, Tosh was a key member of Bob Marley’s inner circle that ended up becoming The Wailers. He was a bit of a musical prodigy who was self-taught on the guitar, and the legend has it that he taught Marley the basics of the reggae rhythms. Citing difficulties with the Wailers’ label Island Records, Tosh split with Marley in 1976 and set off on his own, and in 1978 he released this massive hit with Mick Jagger sharing vocals. Everything really clicked on this all-time classic.
