    This is a solo guy who has this really odd contraption. I guess you could call it a bass, it has one long string and all sorts of buttons to make weird noises. Its hard to explain, but here's a couple videos. Check him out. His music is quite interesting:

  5. I met him a few years ago. Really cool and talented guy. Here are some pics I took:

    That was the same night I met Jean Baudin. That 1 Guy was opening for them:

    They got shafted by being forced to stop after like 20 minutes. They kept playing though even when they turned the lights on. Eventually they turned the lights off and let them play another song or two. It was still a great set though.

  6. Sadly, he's on public record saying that he won't be Les Claypool's stunt double in "Big Momma's House 2":

    I think that's the first one-guy band I've seen where adding an additional musician would be wasteful.
