I am reading "Jaco".......it is amazing story thus far.

Jaco grew up in Ft Lauderdale, Fla?

Did he and any oif the ABB members ever cross paths or know of each other I wonder?

The story will take a pretty tragic turn soon I'd imagine. A friend of mine knew him and some of the storys are pretty sad although there is no doubting his talent.

It was a great read but not exactly a feel-good bit of literature.

Thanks, didn't know there was a book on Jaco. Will check it out, but these sort of titles have a habit of going out of print quickly in the UK. Had the privelege of seeing him with weather report. Not just technically brilliant, he had real feeling in his playing.

Now had a wee look on Amazon UK - is this the Bill Milkowski book you're reading?

Did he really pull the frets out with pliers or is that just a legend?

It's in the book. He called them "speed bumps."

I remember seeing ad's in [the village voice] from Jaco, offering bass lessons for $30 bucks an hour in 1984.

I think I saw Jaco's twin sons playing in a band in Florida some years back...

Another great talent wasted...literally...
