James Brown, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix… It seems like every iconic artist is getting a biopic these days. It’s only a matter of time before Bob Marley inevitably gets the Hollywood treatment, but we’ve always thought Peter Tosh’s story would make for a great movie. Much of Tosh’s story remains untold, and those re-tellings tend to center around “Legalize It”/weed, his relationship with Bob, and anecdotal stuff like the infamous bumbaclot interview. Somewhere in there the person himself seems to have gotten lost.
