    He was actually featured in Bass Player mag a while back for being ingenious and talented.

    I just thought he looked like Joe Satriani :p

    That's amazing!
    What's that wrapped around the fretboard down near the nut?
    A capo of sorts?

    How so? I play with my eyes closed all the time.

    Deaf would be a little more intense if you ask me.
  10. What kind of neck is that on his bass? looks really shinney, also, is it just me or does it look like he has the bandana tied onto the fretboard?

    Oh, and thats just amazing

    It's tight enough to stop open string vibrations while not tight enough to fret a note. It stops sympathetic vibrations so tapping gives you a very clean sound.
  12. Theres a nearly deaf bass player in a local blues band, he uses a nice fretless warwick and spends most of the gig with his head right beside the cab

    He also likes to swear at people alot

    Amazing! This guy inspires me...
  17. Bill is from the same city as me. I met him one time while taking my bass into our local tech. He is very into his music and seems like a nice guy.

    My son (also a bass player) saw him with his band at a local jazz festival and said he was amazing. They played Teen Town and alot other Fusion tunes. I've heard he plays better now than when he had both hands. I understand he was the unfortunate victim of an industrial accident.

  18. i like how he keeps on standing on one leg, to keep it all neatly symmetrical ;)
