wow... very interesting. thank you for sharing.
ooooooooh I like very interesting I enjoy Jaco's story best....................I wonder where it could be...
also another cool story I heard somwhere about Jaco was that once he was all druged up on crack and went to a concert of a very popular band at the time (cant remember what band it was?) but he just walked up on stage and took the bassists bass and just walked out , and apparently the bassist just gave it to him when he came on stage because....he was Jaco Pastorius.
If anyone knowes who the band was I would like to know
That Jaco stuff is REALLY interesting.
to my knowledge, the bass now belongs to his son, Felix Pastorius, he still plays it sometimes. around FL i think
I'm a big Clash fan. Nice to know a little trivia about the London Calling pic.
John Paul Jones sure did jam that fender jazz ! i loved his bass lines on all the Zepplin tunes!
I thought the Bass of Doom was lost during Jaco's homeless period(s?).
Great list, there's some cool stuff on there.
me too,he is a good example of how you can play good lines without over playing your bass.
i actually thought that james jameron's bass would be te most sought after, followed by jaco's. Very, very interesting, but somehow i don't think that any of them would show up in Australia... then again, you just never know
But where is Berry Oakley's TRACTOR????
I think they made a mistake in the Jamerson one too. They talk about the hook. But say it was his signature two finger style. Didnt the hook actually refer to his ONE finger style?
In fact, the Hook is how he named his index finger.
I think I recall reading that Berry's son has the tractor. He loaned it to (Fender?) to have a copy made.
Good ol' Paul McCartney, ever the modest guy...
Feeling that he was "too much of an amateur" to play the Precision Bass which he considered the "Elite players' bass"
Good ol' Macca...
I've seen that bass at the Rock Hall of Fame museum and it's definately SMASHED! It's really cool to have seen it in person.
Can the Fender Custom show make one for me???
Yes, Berry Oakley Jr. owns his dad's Tractor Bass.
I remember a few years ago when Fender CS reported borrowing it to make a clone.
right and for that reason,this bass is not one of the most wanted,because everybody knows who has the bass and where.
