My bud Dale Cruse closed up shop over at Big Bottom. I expect that he will kick butt with his next venture. I can relate to putting a labor of love on the shelf to concentrate on getting solvent. Dale rocked the house with one of the best collections of electric bass and upright bass news and writing that I have ever seen. I hope that one of the bass chat boards finds a way to make room for serious writing and news in addition to the gear lust and grabass that dominates most of them.
Dale set the bar nice and high.
