"Just listen and enjoy!!"

Video Description:
This video shows scenes of Jamaica and film of Peter Tosh & his band performing the song "Johnny Be Goode"

Here is some information about Peter Tosh from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Tosh

"Peter Tosh, born Winston Hubert McIntosh (19 October[1] 1944 – 11 September 1987) was a reggae musician who was a core member of The Wailers who then went on to have a successful solo career as well as being a trailblazer for the Rastafari movement...Nicknamed Steppin' Razor, he began to sing and learn guitar at a young age inspired by the American stations. ..Tosh, as the original guitarist for The Wailers', is considered as one of the originators of the choppy and syncopated reggae guitar style."

mursallus1 (3 months ago) the whole carribbean was full of arawak and tainos indians before any european had even ever thought of sailing to the americas
****
RastafariPoet (3 months ago) Stop being fools, this is reggae the music of love and peace. The hell is wrong with you people. If anything I'd expect people to have good thoughts ATLEAST to a peter tosh song.
****
mauroWW (3 months ago) Johnny be good tonight! Yes , very very crazy
****
ifightaliens (3 months ago) pam Pretty righteous!
****
smokedbarrel (3 months ago) who doesn't understand and does not stand for love&peace, can not even understand this kind of music. fullstop. :)

rasta reggae, love & calmness, need anithing else for heppienes?! its retorical ofcourse.
****
hellojacobhitch4545 (3 months ago) I'm white and I'm not a Rasta. Does that mean im not allowed to enjoy reggae, I thought reggae was about peace and love?
RastafariPoet (3 months ago) It is, dont let anyone tell you different.
****
capnjav (3 months ago) Jah bless Peter Tosh in the highest... babylon will try to squash our prophets, but what they take in blood they cant steal from heart.. peter tosh your music vibrates t'e soul. Bless itinually.

eeyore1965 (3 months ago) rest in peace mr tosh, you were a musical wonder. May more people follow your example of music.
****
MaGmaRinE (3 months ago) bob marley's voice was more suited for reggae than peter but he still has some great talent!
****
SRGVicentini (3 months ago) Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer are not bad, but there is only one King, Bob Marley !!???
****
billyconnearly (3 months ago) Before Jah Bob - before Elvis - before Stones - before Beatles - before Rock there was CHUCK - against ALL odds Mr BERRY triumphed - colour bar, class bar, he IS the KING!!!

****
abz1432 (3 months ago) i must say...this is the most original cover of this anthem.......and its brilliant
****
halomachine1977 (3 months ago) I mean no disrespect but this music is far to precious to be muddled down in petty disputes over who we consider to be kings. Instead of focusing on the differences let's focus on what we all enjoy about the music. Peace and Love.

****
miraculuz (3 months ago) amen
****
caho99 (3 months ago) this makes me wanna go back to africa
****
RobertNunez1 (3 months ago) TherE I's only one king BoB Marley =D
But give Pete Tosh his props...
One Lubb
****
dancehallreggae (3 months ago) Peter Tosh is better than Bob Marley in many ways but bob marley has more fame. Some should not forget that Peter taught Bob Marley how to play guitar.
****
phenie111 (3 months ago) id just like to say that when you compare bob marley and peter tosh its a tie to me it really doenst matter cuz in the end its just an opinion and while people may argue over the fact tht peter tosh is better than bob marley or vis versa, they both faugt fr the same thng..pace, tranquility,equality, love and overall to get th best of life...one love from NY keep blazin
****
Tha6l9 (3 months ago) Bob was good Peter was good. Why does there have to be only one King?

****
Jevezy (3 months ago) These were the days when we had the kings of reggae. I collect music from this era, I just don't connect with the new singers, except for a very few who have kept up the tradition.
****
jahwonga (3 months ago) maybe was bob the purest of souls da walk this wasteland we call earth, he was the man who could only be found by love, peace and allaround happiness, but peter was more powerful and his lyrics was also against the shitstem,babylon...and the western corruptness.... i like peter more, cause he was a man who told the truth, not an entertainer like marley was...but i also love bob...but peter had it a much difficulter in life as marley... soo, for me, peter was the true prophet:))
greetings

****
MRMITCHELLZ (2 months ago) pam its like ya sayin dat river is greater den da ocean
****
ff (2 months ago) All the Wailers had great voices, why the heck you think the band got so famous and has lasted so long? Bob was the more accessible, but either Peter or Bunny could have been his equal had they set their minds to it. And my God, can you imagine what they would have done if all 3 agreed to continue touring together? Let you imagine run wild, reggae would have ruled the radio!!!

swiggy58a (4 months ago) God bless for you posting this; zionlivity, for posting this. This is SOOO cool! I am a 50 year old white dude that plays guitar and loves all kinds of music. Rock n'Roll and Chuck B. are high on the list. I've been to Jamaica. Amazing how the song fits right into Peters' own culture. Guess the deep South where Chuck grew up...was not so far from the modern 3rd World. (Or was Berry from St. Louis, Mo.???)

deadslutbluewater (7 months ago) how did tosh die?
****
dcummings3990 (5 months ago) he was shot and killed by thugs, some say armed robbery some say it was on a bigger scale than that like the government wanted him gone
****
musickhottie93 (5 months ago) it shouldnt matter how he died or why he did, what matters its that he left a legacy behind we ought to cherish him and his music like he's still alive
he is alive through his music
love you peter
thank you peter
****
frenchielcfc (5 months ago) ofcourse it matters how he died. must never be forgotten. his music was to teach people not just dance to and so on.

freesensimillia (7 months ago) when i first heard tosh i was in heaven immediately but when i heard how he died i got really pissed and almost cried but atleast he could make these awsome songs and i think if bob marley and peter tosh would still life today there would be almost complete peace in the whole world and everbody would have equal rights peace

thanks and praises to jah rastafari and emperor haille selassie the king of kings lord of lords and the conquering lion of the tribe of judah

****
wattersdave (7 months ago) The original was Chuck Berry & it's actually called Johnny B Goode. I dunno if the clash maybe did a cover but I can assure u that this song was written long before anyone even knew what punk was lol.
****
credore (7 months ago) For me - one of the best songs ever. This man dies to early. It's a shame. He and Bob Marley are the best. Just listening and relax.
