I doubt many people will care about him here, since hardly any of us like modern music. Also, there aren't many double bass fans here. However, this man was a revolutionary. Haven't heard a lot of him, but I recognize his significance in music today. Rest in peace.

Peace, surely?(!). Yes, not many double bassists or fans here, I imagine. But what is it about Italy and double basses? There is another even finer and somewhat younger player of the instrument who, like Scodanibbio, performs a great deal of contemporary music; while mourning the untimely loss of Stefano Scodanibbio, then, let's hear it for Corrado Canonici.

Best,

Sorry, I was thinking with my fingers and my ears and not with my brain.

Has anyone read what kind of a disease he had?? I looked in Wikipedia and it's a really horrible disease!!!  :o  :(

And I love double bass!! (it's my second favourite instrument together with cello!!)

A cousin of mine died from lou gherig's disease.  It really is one of the worst deaths possible.   I can only imagine the moral strength he must have had and the daily courage to endure it.
