I never got the chance to see him play live but there are several videos out there. In the ones I saw he always had a mic in front of his bass. He also had amazing right hand technique. He used a one finger plucking technique in which his index finger was reinforced by all the other fingers of his right hand. He could play incredibly fast using this technique. It is great to watch him play. I am not sure where these videos are available but I don't think they are too hard to find.
