From a Reader: I was at this concert. Great show. This show was a benefit to raise money to benefit Jackie Wilson. It was so hot in there. I started out about midway back when Mikey Dread played and people kept passing out so by the time the Clash came on, I was right up front. Could barely move.
At the end of the show, Topper Headon threw his sticks into the crowd and one hit me in the face. I grabbed it and some woman next to me bit my arm. I elbowed her in the face from the pain and shoved the stick down my shirt. People were scrambling all over the place to find it. I hopped up on stage and crawled away (the place was jam-packed). I still have the drumstick. It's says "Toppers Boppers" on it.
