    Bill Clements is a Michigan bass player with one arm (or at least one hand). Fortunately, it's his left arm, and he's exceptionally good at playing jazz bass with that it (and a bandanna tied around the neck to stop notes ringing on).

    F'n sweet!

    I know there was a band in Kalamazoo about ten years ago called Killswitch (not Killswitch Engage) that had a one handed bass player. Do you know if this is the same guy? Killswitch was more of a heavier band. I'm just thinking it would be wierd that there were 2 one-handed bassists in Michigan because there can't be too many out there, right?
