Well... just when you think humanity cannot stoop any lower, there is this: a 19 year old "man" allegedly stole a bottle of vodka from the Dominion Riverrock outdoor sports and music festival, drank it's contents and then upon realizing that he had vanquished the stolen bottle, decided to throw the empty. On the stage. At Toots Hibbert. While he was covering a fucking John Denver song.

The 67 year old living legend was struck on the head by the projectile, scaring the living shit out of both he and everyone in attendance. Hibbert was taken to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, then released early on Sunday morning for a cut on his head. Festival organizer Stephen Lecky said Toots was doing much better adding “He was in good spirits and was very appreciative of Richmond. He said he wanted to come back, and he understood this was just one bad apple, basically.”

A horribly rotten apple is more like it. Watch the video below of the perfectly mellow version of "Take Me Home Country Roads" gets interupted by this assclown throwing the bottle (bottle toss is towards the end).

Lecky added that "He was one of the nicest men I've ever met". Of course he was. He's friggin Toots! To the aforementioned 19 year old: you are everything that is soulless and wrong on this earth. A plague on both your houses and may Toots have mercy on your soul... he has actually probably already forgiven you, because he's friggin Toots.


Enough of these ugly vibes, listen to Toots And The Maytals' classic "Pressure Drop":
