This White Fender Precision bass has been used
extensively on the Mark Knopfler Sailing to Philadelphia 2001 world tour
by Glenn Worf. Glenn bought the bass second hand in San Fransisco in May 2001.
It’s sole purpose was to perform the song Pyroman which involves a rather
violent end scenario in which Glenn drops the bass from a great height. At the end of this concert's performance of
Pyroman the headstock has split in 3 places. Everyone in the band signed the
PyroBass after the last
show at midnight in Moscow, 31st July 2001.
After the tour, the bass was auctioned on Ebay by
Guy Fletcher. The bass was sold for £3,777.00. All
proceeds from this sale were donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust charity
in the UK.
