A new coffee table book with the Foreword by Roberta Flack is now available. This is the definitive book on Bob and Peter who together wrote the reggae anthem
"Get Up, Stand Up."
The book showcases the years between 1975 and 1983 when reggae, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh became international super stars. They come alive in photographs, uncensored interviews, on the road, in their homes, in performances and rehearsals.
Vividly relive the rich experience of the free flowing lifestyle of the era."You take some different kind'a photo."
"Bob Marley and Peter Tosh are classic examples of artists who were
visionaries and revolutionists. Now, finally the enlightening story told by Fikisha Cumbo.
Bobbi Humphrey, Flautist
"Bob Marley and Peter Tosh had a beautiful friendship whose power may have
only been topped by the music they made which was truly revolutionary.
There are many things that only someone close to the culture can know about
and write about."
David Henderson, author of the Jimi Hendrix biography

THE PETER TOSH TRIBUTE ALBUM, MUSEUM, AND AFFILIATED PROJECTS ARE NOT - FOR - PROFIT
The Peter Tosh Tribute Album is being done to fund the construction of a medical clinic, a library, and the Peter Tosh Museum in Jamaica. Proceeds from this album will also be the primary source of funding for our "Instruments for the Youth" program, which working in the cooperation of companies like Martin Guitars and Ernie Ball Strings, and Mid East Mfg. provides musical instruments to needy children.
Additionally, a massive three day International Music Festival is planned to coincide with the grand opening of the Peter Tosh Museum. I cannot express the importance of completing this album and the impact it will have on so many lives. The current state of Jamaica's economy can be reflected by the recent massive layoff by Air Jamaica, and other major Jamaican corporations. This project will help secure the future of Jamaican's tourism, with the Peter Tosh Museum and Annual International Music Festival. The first of these events will prove to be the largest in Jamaica's history.
However, I urge you to help us with the support to raise the funds to complete this tribute album, which features Eric Clapton, Slash (Guns N Roses), Sean Paul, Aswad, the late Jerry Garcia, Luciano, Ben Harper, Lucky Dube, Dean Fraser, Jeffrey Gaines, Edi Fitzroy, Frankie Paul, Andrew Tosh, Martha Davis/The Motels, Bob Andy, Bad Brains, Speech, Lasana Bandele, Tippie Irie, and Maxi Priest.Being directly involved in this business you can help us raise funds towards our goal of $150K. Since we set up our website www.ptosh.com to accept donations by Paypal, over a month ago, we have had a total of zero donations. If you are a DJ or Webmaster please encourage people to donate through our website. We are still looking for an investor(s) as well as sponsors.
This is a great project which will benefit many people, but the only way it is going to happen is with the cooperation, help, and support of everyone and all of us play a part in making this album. The state of the current economy and the situation with the war, has led us to being unsuccessful so far in securing any kind of monetary support. We have had lots of donations of signed photos & CD's, and even a couple guitars. But, realistically this does not even represent a great deal of the amount we need to secure.
We continue everyday to seek sponsors and investors, as well as, record labels and distributors. But it appears that this may just be our entire project, and we may have to produce this album without any corporate monetary support. The economy is really bad right now, and it is why this project will prove so beneficial to all, and a long overdue tribute to brother, Peter Tosh. Plus, what more better a time than now? To spread Peter's important message all over the world in this time of uncertainty and war.
Please encourage donations, sponsors, and investors whenever possible.
We are encouraging you to do fundraisers of any type, and benefit concerts.
Anything you could do would be most appreciated. Five and ten dollar pledges
add up. Especially since we have not received a donation to date. Please help
us make this project reality.
