Get your fake Jamaican accents out... It's Reggae MON-DAZE, Mon.

Hey Mon! Welcome to another reoccurring segment here at EDAS called Reggae Mon-Days. Get it? I have a huge collection of reggae music, predominantly Rocksteady and Roots music, and I used to listen to it all winter just to keep warm.

The first Reggae Song is by the man who taught Bob Marley how to play guitar, one of the original Wailers, Peter Tosh.

Forget Jah, judging from the montage it looks like he let that giant gun Guide him. However neither did him much good. In the midst of a career resurgence in 1987 that included a Grammy nod and a successful collaboration with Mick Jagger & Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, he was brutally murdered in his Jamaica home by robbers. It was the shortest jury deliberation in Jamaican History... 11 Minutes.

Song #5/RM #1: Peter Tosh - Jah Guide
