John Norwood Fisher

John Norwood Fisher (known as Norwood Fisher, born September 12, 1965) is the bass player and founder for the band Fishbone. Fisher has played bass in the band throughout its history, even as other members have departed and returned. Fisher generally lends propulsive slap-funk playing to the band's tunes, while holding down the band's grooves throughout their myriad changes of musical direction. He is a founding member of funk band Trulio Disgracias. He is also known for his live and in studio projects with artists such as Rodleen Getsic. Most recently he has been working on a solo project calling himself Woody Weedstraw, with material inspired from his love for pot smoking. In addition, he is also a member of the supergroup Mr. Green All-Stars, consisting of ex-members of Bad Brains and the Dead Kennedys. Fisher is known to style his hair into a single, well-endowed dread on top of his head that he calls his "sacred antenna" to communicate with people around the world, and for wearing robes (or sometimes only a bath towel or garbage bag) on stage. Fisher's influence extends to several of the biggest musical acts of the 1990s.
