Bill Clements, the one armed bass player

Pretty impressive stuff. I have two hands and can barely play the radio. Apparantly, he was a bass player before he lost his arm in an industrial accident.

Saw him play live here. My dad actually taught him how to play when he was a kid.

Would it be crass of me to suggest he form a band with Rick Allen of Def Leppard?

They could call themselves The One-Armed Bandits, and their first album could be called "Out on a Limb". Includes the hits "Armed and Dangerous" and the ballad "Lend Me a Hand".

I'm so very sorry.
