    Great show! Warwick fans would have been in heaven. Nothing but Warwick at all on his side of the stage.

    Awesome video!!! I've loved Fishbone ever since I first heard this song in Good Time Boys by RHCP. Norwood is the man.

    We love Norwood! He's been a long time endorser, and has a mean arsenal of Thumb basses, as well as his Infinity, Alien Bass, and Star Bass II! Always fun when Norwood is around!

    He is such a nice guy too! Always hangs with the fans and talks after the show.

    I got to see one of his old 5 string Thumbs getting worked on at the old Warwick distribution house down in Venture, CA. This bass was used and abused. Wish I had taken a photo.

    I have to say that I was surprised that he used fretless basses so much. It was all awesome!

    Saw him at BPL. Saw the Bone live in 1987 (yeah, I'm old) the first time. Then about 5 or 6 times after that throughout the years. Love playing along to Bonin' - great line.

    I've been fortunate enough to play a few shows opening for Fishbone, and have even been invited up to do a set with his Trulio Disgracious project. Norwood is a class act. For the TD show, I was playing electric guitar jamming with Norwood, Lonnie Marshal (Weapon of Choice) and a few other cats. Talk about intimidation! Lonnie had a shoebox with rubber bands, and Norwood was playing a fretless over on the other side of the stage. No visual cues to go off of, just ear!

    I'm all the way to the left:
