    That is awesome, those are two gentlemen who didn't get honored enough when they were alive.

    Isn't that bass long gone?
  7. His upright was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few years ago.

  8. It was all the local bass players bringing THEIR instruments to the museum for the group photo I posted. Jamersons Funk Machine (Fender Precision) was stolen shortly before his death.
