Wasn't he the guy who followed the guy (Timothy B. Schmit) who followed the guy (Randy Meisner) in Poco?

His 65' sunburst Jazz bass was stolen from his home.
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Personally, I find a natural decrease in the number of existing Fender basses not that disconcerting;D

 Oh c'mon, every one of them is a priceless classic - More rare than a Unicorn that craps cupcakes.

Especially those 70s Fenders that you couldn't give away 25 years ago. Now every one of them has that special tone you just can't get from a new one.

I also tire of the ceaseless worship of beat-up old Fenders on TB. To me, a beat up bass is just a beat up bass that should have been taken care of better.

For that matter, if Trigger didn't belong to Willie Nelson we'd probably all think it was the product of neglect and mistreatment. But Willie gets a pass on it (including from me, the man is a national treasure in the middle of a smoke cloud.)
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)
