Which is fitting, because the bass was also real important to Ameduri, and his early ’70s Fender Precision (dubbed Goldie) bass painted across the back wall of Jessie’s Lounge continues to inspire those who looked to Ameduri for musical guidance.

“In this community, so many people gained so much from him,” Chodorcoff says. “So, to a small degree, he’s still here, because his advice is still making records in our community sound better.”
