    Mi love Peter like cook food...Peter's history of activism doesn't fit in with the 'one love', feel good that they have morphed Marley into...Peter's actions n interactions with the ****sym r well publicized...hard for them to make him the posterboy for feel good tourism Ja...

    Peter was never anyone's boy n never backed down from a fight...no one no influence him fi choose money over integrity n we know him was a shade too dark plus militant

    we who know the music , know dat hands down Peter beat Bob...
    u so fake, even China denied mekking u

    I agree

    Musically Peter was a Musicans musican..... I would love to remove the vocals and reduce the drum and base from so many Tosh tracks. ..... I was on a hill walk the other day and i listened to three hours of Peter.....it blew my mind how musical it was... I has the base turned down... and you hear strings and horns in some suprising places..... I mean i have heard it said heloved Tschykoski....

    I was at a funeral of my best friend a few years back..And oneof my friends complained P was a revoultionary, yet we had reduced him to so cuddly conservative... I think we have done the same with Peter, Bob and even Gregory....Made them into some type of hippy...

    Rasta is not black hippies........And it angers me, Rasta ... I was at a christmas play for my 9 year old son the other day... they did a brilliant non traditional play... But a "Christmas carol" was used and they morphed Marley's Ghost into Bob Marley the ghost.....No it was not black face, the child playing him actually had a passing resembleance...... It was i can hear so many Rasses say "wi nuh deal wid no duppy..."
