Jaco Pastorius is the one of the best bassists ever.
A typical bass solo for Jaco would be him hitting random notes on his bass guitar, rarely in the same key. He would slap his fingers all around the fretboard, not knowing what he was doing, because he was constantly strung out on heroin, crack-cocaine and other illicit substances. All-in-all, Jaco's solos were a Charlie Foxtrot
These mockeries that Jaco called solos, would make any real musician extremely angry, yet the average un-educated Jaco fan would listen to his terrible solos and think he is ... "experimental" and actually knows how to play bass, when in truth, he did not.
Jaco died in 1987 probably because he took too many drugs, because he was retarded. He deserved it. He was a stain on the musical community and all real musicians are happy he's gone.
