Episode: The Motown Bottom Line
Our contributor’s heart skipped a beat when he came across a battered Ampeg B-15 amp with the name “James Jamerson” stenciled on the side. Jamerson, the man who’s bass line drove the Motown sound, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. Now the museum might want to display the amp, but only if Eduardo Pagán can prove Jamerson owned it.
