Bill Clements, the One-Handed Bass Player.

Bill Clements is a Michigan bass player who lost his right hand and forearm in an industrial accident in 1989. This would have been a career-ending accident, but not for Bill, who started played again 3 months later.

There's a band in Austin called The Flametrick Subs, and their basist, Lefty DeMarco, also plays bass without one of his hands, but uses a different technique. He frets his standup bass with his wrist nub, and plays better than most other bassists. It is nothing less than amazing to watch.
