Musicians gathered at the Washington Gardens Seventh-day Adventist Church in St Andrew last Sunday, for the funeral service of their colleague Uzziah 'Sticky' Thompson. Thompson, a prolific percussionist, died August 25 from a heart attack in Florida. He was 78. Thompson played on countless hit songs in a 50-year career such as Little Did You Know by the Techniques and I Need a Roof by the Mighty Diamonds. There was a video tribute from Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Stephen Marley with whom Thompson toured for several years. Among those who attended the service were singers Judy Mowatt and Sangie Davis, producers Winston 'Niney' Holness, Clive Hunt, Gussie Clarke and Donovan Germain, saxophonist Dean Fraser; keyboardists Bowie McLaughlin and Robbie Lyn, percussionists Bongo Herman and Denver Smith, bass players Lloyd Parks, Mikey Fletcher, Donald Dennis and Errol 'Flabba' Holt, guitarists Earl 'Chinna' Smith, Winston 'Bo Pee' Bowen, Rad Bryan and Dwight Pinkney.
