    I still want to cut the Mothman into little pieces and have them distributed to TBers.

    The Mothman is owned by a TB'er, who is/was another TB'ers bass teacher, if I recall my Mothman Lore correctly

    o_O There's a fan-fic (graphic novel?) opportunity here...

    I did not know that! It seems like there should be a wiki entry on this stuff and it's mysterious history.
  12. This explains why there are so few pics of JJ, he was actually avoiding publicity to hide the mothful truth... All those pics with the Funk Machine are staged, the Funk Machine is nothing more than a stage prop, a myth to throw off would-be contenders to the throne, ie the coveted bass chair in the Funk Brothers session crew.

    Great idea, Volker, a fan-fic graphic novel; maybe something noire-ish about how the Funk Machine was *poof* — vanished.

    Yup, he had scratched "Mothfunk" into the neck's heel and filled it in with blue ink.

    With apologies to my fellow M.O.T.s....
    Dean N's idea may have given rise to the "Mothman seder:"
    Holding up Mothman the leader says: "This is the bass of our affliction...

    Didn't Carol Kaye's book claim that SHE tamed the Mothman?!....:cautious:

  19. The Mothman's origins are shrouded in time and mystery, like the ring in the Lord of the Rings.

    Somewhere, there is a TBer talking to his precious.
