Musicians pay final respects to ‘Sticky’

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.
