Tosh was also the only reggae artist signed to the Stones’ record label from 1978 until 1981, and collaborated with Jagger on 1978’s “Walk and Don’t Look Back”. He also opened for the Stones throughout their 1978 US tour, and is featured in the opening scene of the group’s video for “Waiting On A Friend.”
A self-taught guitar and keyboard player, he and The Wailers became pioneers of the burgeoning reggae scene in the late 1960’s, and together they toured the world for over ten years. He left the band in 1973 to pursue his solo career and earned huge success with “Legalize It” and later solo releases. The Museum project is promised to give fans a deeper look into the man behind the music. Tosh died at the age of 42 in 1987 during a tragic home invasion.
