    has anyone heard about this ?

    http://www.realvibes.net/articles/apr/13_tosh.html

    excerpt 1 :

    The album will not only pay tribute to the late artist, but revenue from its sales will also provide the funds needed for the repair and renovation of Peter Tosh’s Mausoleum in Belmont, Jamaica. Also planned is the completion of the Tosh Museum, which was partially erected back in 1995, and construction of a medical clinic, a library, and a gift shop. The buildings will be erected on Tosh’s burial site in Belmont, which is also the home of Tosh’s mother Alvera Coke.

    Veteran promoter and former Atlanta resident Mike Malott, conceived the album project shortly after moving to Negril, Jamaica and will be working closely with Peter’ s son; Dave Tosh who has joined the production team. Andrew Tosh (also Peter Tosh’s son) will also assist in the production but has been actively touring to support his music career. The album is planned for release in early 2004 and the project is currently in discussions with five major labels regarding the release and states that the response has been very positive. Artists that are confirmed to contribute to the album including Eric Clapton, the late Jerry Garcia, multi-platinum Cypress Hill, multi-Grammy award winning artist Maxi Priest, Slash, Matt & Duff from Guns & Roses, and acclaimed recording artist; Jeffery Gaines, blues guitarist extraordinaire Jimmie Vaughan, Peter Tosh’s son; Andrew Tosh, J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Edi Fitzroy, Bad Brains, Tippie Irie, international music star Lucky Dube, Ben Harper, Sean Paul, Bob Andy along with Dean Fraser and special guest TBA (look for Shabba or Buju), and international reggae great Lasana Bandele, who is also working on the project with Malott along with Dave Tosh. The album will also feature a chilling acoustic version of "Pick Myself Up" just completed by Martha Davis of The Motels. Also to be featured on the album is former Tosh guitarist, Donald Kinsey. Kinsley is the person responsible for Tosh recording the Chuck Berry classic "Johnny Be Good" after suggesting it when Tosh was looking for something to finish up his release "Mama Africa". Other artists contributing a track include Luciano, as well as, David Lindley and Aswad. Four of the artists songs have now been completed to date.

    I think there’s a definite link between reggae music and J. there’s a relaxed vibe in both phenomenons.
