Jaco didn’t need a Ric
Yes but probably more related to their being involved in Scientology. I think Chick was into it and maybe Stanley too.
Oh yes! I should have thought of that! Clarke was an active Scientologist back in the day. I don’t know if he still is or not.
L Ron Hubbard wrote sci fi type books though so I guess it all goes together. Vulcan Worlds etc.
I remember reading a L. Ron Hubbard story or two Sci-Fi pulp reprints when I was a kid.
After the "Musicmagic" tour, Stanley ditched Scientology altogether.
Thanks for the info.
I saw an Austin City limits with the Headhunters in 74 or 75 and RTF was opening for them. The only reason I checked it out was Bobby Lamm the keys player from Chicago had recommended the Headhunters. Up until then the Bass players I loved were, Chris Squire, Jack Bruce, and Peter Cetera. I had never heard any real Jazz except maybe in passing, but Bobby Lamm said Herbie Hancock was cool so I tuned in. Clarke was playing his Ric then, I heard it and became an instant fusion, later Jazz fiend. I had never heard any one play bass like that. I wore holes in the grooves of "Where have I known you Before".
