    Here's the bridge. I did all of the fitting myself. It's an Aubert select, I think.

    Who's "PARROTFISH"? And who's "Polly"? He/She/It must be pretty lost, since I can't find any trace. :confused:

    It's good to be king. :D

  16. Somehow, while trying to figure a good way to post a pic that wasn't so LARGE, I seem to have gotten both the large and the small versions posted. Sorry 'bout that!

    I guess that if anyone takes the time for the large version to download, they'll at least see Comrade
    Bass in a lot more detail! :(

    You're not really barefoot there are ya Flipflop Larry:p
  18. Well, the Short Stock Answer there is that just about every place I play serves food in addition to drinks, and the health department won't allow bare feet, which is true.

    However, the name was originally pinned on me about 20 years ago, because my feet don't get cold.

    Thong sandals are as bare as my feet ever actually get, but they're also as "Shod" as my feet ever actually get, unless there's some social reason that actual shoes are required.

    I like to stay comfortable unless it's too cold, and it's never too cold.

    I used to show up at friend's houses to jam in the dead of winter, and they used to say "Man, aren't your feet cold?? You might as well be barefooted!"

    One day, as I was getting my stuff through the door after they had started without me, someone turned around and said "well, Barefoot Larry's here". It just stuck.

    I've been found pumping gas after a gig in February at 2:00am wearing a heavy jacket and thongs.

    I always play onstage as the picture shows, with bib overalls, a red shop-rag for a handkerchief and a black pocket-tee... with the thongs.

    The thongs stay, though, year-round, when I'm not onstage.

    I should mention that we try to only book within 30 miles of The Alamo, so "bitterly cold" works out to 25 degrees above zero with a stiff breeze.

    When it gets below freezing in San Antonio, it's a front-page headline in the paper, and if ANY ice should actually form, they start shutting down the freeways.

    Usually the winter stays somewhere around 45-50 degrees in the day, and will get pretty close to freezing about the time you're on the way home from playing. Hard on the cheeks & hands if you have to stop for gas. :cool:

    San Antonio only has two seasons... Christmas and Summer.
