Some Jerk Hits Toots Hibbert With Bottle. Provokes Karma in The Worst Way Possible. *UPDATED*


Toots went to the VCU Hospital where he received 7 staples. He has been released and somehow has already performed a show in New York. He does have this boss scar now. What a freaking trooper.

It appears that some ass-head threw a bottle at the man who first coined the word reggae. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert and his Maytals have been bringing irie vibes to the masses for over 45 years and they certainly deserve better than this crap. I have seen him on several occasions and he is truly one of the great performers out there. I would advise any live music fans to catch him with his original bandmates before they hang it all up.

They have already caught and arrested the perpetrator, some teenage schmuck who has now dragged the entire Virginia  music scene through the dirt. This jerk is lucky he hasn't caused massive damage, very few 67 year olds can take a vodka bottle to the dome. We here at #EDAS just want to send our positive thoughts and prayers over to the man himself and wish him a short recovery both physical and mental. I don't have much to say to the bottle-thrower, karma will take care of him no doubt. Enjoy a historic blast from the past with an old school Rasta Mon-day.
