He thought of himself as his musical alter ago, the Stepping Razor: “Don’t you touch my side, I’m dangerous.” But this synchronicity of Tosh’s new establishment acceptance and the fruits of the legalisation struggle he fought for, as cannabis legalisation spreads across worlds rich and poor, are part of a broader awakening to the activist singer-songwriter’s qualities.

One small point of correction, the lyrics are, of course, "Don't watch my size, I'm dangerous". It should also be noted that Peter did not write these lyrics. Joe Higgs authored Steppin' Razor. This makes much more sense when you consider that Higgs was all of 5'7" and Peter was 6'4".

As this article touches upon the One Love Peace Concert (which coincidentally took place 38 years ago tomorrow), I will share one of Lee Jaffe's favourite photos, taken during the soundcheck. Pictured from left to right: Robbie Shakespeare, Peter and Al Anderson.
