I & I: The Natural Mystics: Marley, Tosh and Wailer
A trio of Trench Town R&B crooners, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley, swapped their 1960s Brylcreem hairdos and two-tone suits for 1970s battle fatigues and dreadlocks to become the Wailers - one of the most influential groups in popular music. This title charts their complex relationship, their fluctuating fortunes, and musical peak.
The history of the original Wailers - Tosh, Livingstone and Marley - as never before told
"The main merit of this perceptive work is that, by not making Marley its focus, it gets closer to the truth about him than most other biographers... Colin Grant has composed a highly evocative and original account of a misunderstood group, and the misunderstood man at its core." --"Literary Review" "Provides a lively introduction to the life and times of the Wailers and, incidentally, to the neo-African religions and animist cults of beautiful, bedevilled Jamaica." --"Sunday Times"
