Remembering Ove Bosch

Ove Bosch has passed away at the age of 51. He was not only the man behind Warwick’s Bass Camp, but also a writer, journalist, and bass teacher. Above all, he was a beloved family man. He leaves behind his wife and daughter, and we wish his family and friends strength with their enormous loss.

I cannot help but make this a personal story, as I knew Ove well and I loved the man. Sometime in 2013, Warwick founder and director Hans-Peter Wilfer asked me if I wanted to help with the second edition of the Bass Camp. I was willing, so in August of that year I flew to Nuremberg, to be picked up there for the last one and a half hours by car to Markneukirchen.
