    Ok this is probally a n00b question but I have never been sure on this...

    How do you say "Jaco"?

    I'm not sure it's "Jack-O", or "Jake-O", or something different?

    Oddly enough, from the biogs I've read, I believe it was pronounced 'Jock-O', at least by his family.

    Well... that's my "accent" on Jock-O... but that's generally what I meant... Jahhko = Jock-O


    My uncle calls him Jack-O, and I'm always like "You mean Michael Jackson?"
     
  5. With an English accent it's best pronounced 'Jake-o'.
    Jacko sounds like the good Mr Jackson, and Jaah-co sounds snobbish..
    '...Has anybody heard jaah-co pastorius? He's absolutely spiffing, what! Tally ho!'

    Yeah, I do come off as a snob sometimes: But then again, I pronounce his last name "Pizzasaurus"
