    It was the name of a place his old band played at when he they were kids.

    Teen Town is short for "Thirteen Town".

    The song got its name due to the fact that it is comprised mainly of 13th chords.

    Yea, kind of anti climatic but it's something fun to pullout of your back pocket during your next Jaco conversation...



  10. nope...the song is called teen town because of a club jaco used to play at when he was in Las Olas brass...this is when he first picked up bass mind you...the name of the club was teen town, it was a place for kids to go and hang out in Lauderdale

    Actually, I would ask you to find some manners. This forum is busy enough without having to wade through posts that aren't appropriate for this forum. TalkBass offers other forums that are appropriate places for this discussion. This forum is intended for the discussion of bass guitars only.

    Teen Town was some sort of youth club/live venue in Florida that Jaco spent a lot of time around in the early days. I have some audio of Jaco relating the story.

    however it is more important that I bring out the fact that your reply was a blatant act of dissrespect. I don't mind being corrected but man... be cool about it, that's all!

    I appreciate the intent but the tone has no place here on TB.

    Thanks for the heads up though...

    Ken toby, I am with you, man!

    You showed some enthusiasm and brought something to the table, but in your excitement to commicate with other Bass players, you neglected to put it in the right section..


    Xxlion's post was sarcastic and just plain rude. He is either a Jacophobe, or upset because you knew something he didn't.

    But, judging by his "I don't care" comment, he probably should find a different forum altogther..since communicating is something he does not care to do!

    Gawd, I hate these entrenched, old school, stickler-for-the-rules types!

    They usually suck at bass, too!

    I for one, appreciated your post, and even if you were wrong, I learned a new jaco fact today!

    You know, I bet you're right.

    Xyllion, you should really not let your jealousy of KenToby's knowledge get the best of you like that. It just doesn't follow the ethics and maturity we demand here at talkbass.

    I knew everyone cared about my opinion of this pivotal thread, so I made sure to post it. Thank you, and goodnight.

    Todd, I am humbled. You are completely right. I was totally jealous and couldn't stand it. ;)

    Oh and whoever said that I suck at bass, you are totally correct. I'm the worst of the worst. I couldn't play a note if my life depended on it. My only goal is to make everyone else in the bass community so miserable that they will all want to quit and then I will be the best bass player in the world by default. But alas, you have seen through my evil plan. :bag:

    I wasn't trying to start World War III. I'm sorry that I was in a rotten mood when I made my post. Although, I still think this thread is in the wrong forum.
