They are the favored strings of many players including Billy Sheehan, John Paul Jones and Rush's Geddy Lee. The RotoSound website posted a video earlier today of Geddy Lee wishing the strings a happy 50th anniversary. You can watch the video below or at this location (thanks simont2112):

As a bass player (and a rabid fan of Geddy Lee), I can say that these strings are certainly the best sounding in my opinion. Although they don't last quite as long (doesn't help that I play sometimes for up to 5 hours a day), I don't know where my tone would be without them! Happy B-Day Rotosound 66 Swing Bass Strings!!!
