San Luis Obispo, CA (July 10, 2018) – First introduced in 1976, the STINGRAY by Ernie Ball Music Man remains one of the most iconic bass guitars on the market and a favorite among influential players such as Tony Levin, Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford, Dave Matthews Band’s Stefan Lessard and MxPx’s Mike Herrera, to name a few.

One of the very first album reviews I did on BassRamblings.com was for Joseph Patrick Moore’s excellent album To Africa With Love. Since that review I have become quite a fan of Moore’s music. Moore’s uplifting and energetic bass lines have earned him a top spot among my favorite bass players.
