The event was hosted by Eddy Money and Toni Basil (Oh Mickey You're so fine.. you're so fine you blow my mind hey Mickey!) Other celebs included Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick, Wayne Nelson of Little River Band and Jane Wiedlin from the Go-Go's. Stevie dropped the starting race flag. Mick Fleetwood's new band Los Cholos (which eventually morphed into The Zoo) played after the run.  Up on stage were Christine McVie, Billy Burnett, John McVie, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, and Mick Fleetwood.

I always thought this was a Fleetwood Mac show where Lindsey wasn't able to attend and Billy filled in for him? Was this really advertised as a "Stevie Nicks & Friends" show?

These guy's joined the Mac later in 87 when Lindsay quit for five years they only did one album. Behind the mask not a bad album but different.

I played at that event with my band, Native. We were a rock reggae band from Jamaica and the least know of the musicians. Some of the bands competed in the running events and we won the relay race. I think Jack Mack and the Heart Attack came in second. I got to shake a tamberine on stage next to Stevie Nicks during the show. Afterwards the musicians went over to the penthouse bar at the Holiday Inn in Brentwood. I remember sitting at a table with Christine McVie and John McVie and shooting the breeze with them. It was a day to remember!
