Andi Beckendorf was appointed Associate Editor of Bass World in 2001 and worked alongside the celebrated Editor at that time, Joelle Morton. In 2005, Andi was tapped to assume the post of Editor, and for the past five years the readership has benefited from her professionalism, her precise editing, her astute content management, and her steady and watchful pursuit of the highest possible standards and values of the ISB and its journal. This issue of Bass World will be the first without Andi Beckendorf at the helm, but we are not going to bid farewell. Instead, we are going to have the opportunity to know her a little better. For nine years she has reviewed and edited articles, narratives, and prose in order to prepare them for the ISB readership. The nature of the post of Editor allowed her to become acquainted with many bassists and their diverse interests. Yet, I feel, we know very little about her. For this reason, it is fitting to end her tenure with an interview.
