Toots & the Maytals (originally called The Maytals) are a Jamaican band and one of the best known reggae/ska vocal groups.

Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh was born to a father and mother too young to take care of him. He grew up raised by his aunt, speaking out for those who could not fight for themselves. Nicknamed Steppin' Razor, he began to sing and learn guitar at a young age inspired by the American stations. After an illustrious career with The Wailers and as a solo musician, he was murdered at his home during a robbery.

The Wailers

The Wailers were a Jamaican reggae, ska and rocksteady band created by Peter Tosh. The band formed when self taught musician Peter Tosh met Neville Livingston (Bunny Wailer), and Robert Nesta Marley (Bob Marley) in 1963 and taught them how to play guitar, keyboards, and percussion.

Bob Marley

Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley, OM was a Jamaican singer-songwriter and musician. He was the rhythm guitarist and lead singer for the ska, rocksteady and reggae band Bob Marley & The Wailers (1963–1981). Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music, and is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience.
