So I pick up an issue of Bass guitar, with Jaco on the cover, and it talking a bit about how he changed bass playing etc, and somewhere it talked a (small bit) about his life and not "so popular antics" I have read simular reviews before about his "so called personality problems" I say so called because I dont know for sure. Point is...it seems like if you have talent in what-ever area of life, but you tick people off, you limit yourself in the minds of people of "how great you are, could be, or could have been" For example, take football's T.O of the Eagles, people comment on "how great he is" but it is usually followed up by, how great " he could have been" if not for his attitude. They say the same thing about Randy Moss. We know Jaco was great, but, could he have been seen as greater in the minds of people had he not left bad impressions in the minds of some people? Should anyone even care what he did with his personal life when it comes to judging him as a bass player? or maybe its " Jaco was a great Bass player, just think of how great he COULD HAVE BEEN" FWIW, he will be great in my mind regardless, everyone has an attitude from time to time, some of are just bigger than others.
