Well anyhow, Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots sure seems to like EB-2's according to what he says here:

That does however not prove he used one during recordings in the 90's though.

Suzi was obviously not grunge. What a relief.

But she would have fit in just fine if she was in that scene at the time (depending on the phase; maybe not some of her more glammy periods).  Nothing is an island - you're the one who likes to connect genre dots all the time.

I really hate it when you use my own arguments against me.

Herman's Hermits. That singer has some exciting teeth! I see the bassist has the strap mounted on the headstock. He also has quite an interesting left hand technique, with the thumb rooted in behind the E string. Because the bass is on such a sort strap, his left arm approaches from behind the bridge, forcing his wrist into an awkward-looking ninety degree turn. That can't be comfortable!

That's Karl Green, original bassist of Herman's Hermits

I see he's lengthened his strap a bit since then!

The above-mentioned Robert DeLeo with an(other) EB-2 early on in the STP-career, he also wrote the music (posted on behalf of Rob who found this):
