Sly Dunbar:

He was supporting reggae singer Delroy Wilson at The Hummingbird, a concert venue in Birmingham in 1987. I knew the manager who operated the venue, he gave me access and introduced me to Sly and Delroy Wilson. They were going through the soundcheck, I asked if I could take photos of him playing drums, he agreed and said come up on stage. We had a conversation as well and I remember asking him how he achieved the drum pattern on The Viceroys’ “Heart Made Of Stone.”
