    I hadn't realized that either! This is especially interesting to me because I performed two of his songs in front of my school today, and I hadn't even realized that this is the anniversary of his death.

    Thanks for pointing this out to me, I feel like I've paid a tribute to Jaco somehow. :)
  4. RIP Jaco. You're the man, and you always will be.

    I just bought a fretless today! What a coincidence.

    If I look at the replies at TB I'd say that his legacy is still alive and kicking.

    RIP Jaco
  8. Yeah he's more famous now then ever.

    I among many others am grateful for the time that we had you. You opened the door for so many that came after you; a door few knew could even exist, much less be able to open it. We are eternally in your debt.

    Be at rest...

    Happy birthday Jaco. I wish I could've seen you play live; but one day I will.

    Tell Jimi and Bonzo that I said "Hi!".

    Ooops!!! :eek: Man, do I feel stupid. That's what putting in a 12 hour day at work will do.

    Thanks for correcting me, :)
