    Tulsa, Ok Bonin' in the Boneyard!!!

    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!

    No, not particularly so. : ) He's medium tall, and thin

    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:
