Regular bass blog contributor Benjy sent in this great photo from an old International Society of Bassists journal that he scanned, retouched, and framed.
I’m sure that it will amuse the bass community- we can actually count the number of strings he played on! If I’m not mistaken, he was very active in adding on the low E to be able to perform the Othello solo. He dedicates the pic to Emmanuel Nelson, whoever he may have been.
You can check out Benjy’s many wonderful article contributions to the blog through the bass blog articles link.
