A few days ago i boiled some old bass strings i found, in memory of him. I'm in the process of cleaning them up and restringing this acoustic bass i found which i was playing coincidentally at Anthrocon (not having realized that Rodney Anonymous was kicked out of there i'm guessing moments before i started), doing dead milkmen songs like stuart and bitching camaro, half in the bag from drinking all weekend ^_^
Now i'm going to learn these bass lines for real, instead of half mimicking them from memory. (which is fun, too.)
Dave Blood really was an influential bass player and is an inspirational soul.
I hope his spirit is at peace now.
