I've always wondered about the connection between being bi-polar and being a great musician. Seems like a disproportionate number of great musicians have that disorder.

Weather Report is how I know Jaco's playing, and no doubt, it was and always will be some of the best in music. Just wondering: does anyone know if Jaco expressed his opinions about Rush? If so, what did he think? It would seem like he would have at least respected Rush.

Sad news about Jon Lord. I was lucky enough to see Purple as my first band in 1972 in London at probably their height career wise as Machine Head had just been released. The princely sum of £1 then and people sat down during show on floor-makes the £200 packages seem a world away they charge today for so called first 15 rows etc.
Lord was fantastic keyboard player and Lazy will probably be his finest hour.

Jaco was an amazing bass player who pushed the envelope for bass... especially his solos. His biography (link is a great read. I'm sure Geddy was influenced by Jaco... I think any bassist on the planet who heard Jaco had to be influenced!

Jon Lord R.I.P.

My first Deep Purple gig was at the Royal Albert Hall London in the Summer of 1971.
That gig 41 years ago around the time of "In Rock" and "Fireball" when I was just 15 years old turned my on to Rock in a big way and it is a very sad day for me today.

Jaco Pastorius's 1976 self-titled solo album is an awesome listening experience for me.

Jaco was (and still is.. IMHO)the greatest bass player EVER.

and....R.I.P. John Lord.

I'd like to hear Geddy's thoughts on Jaco and his contribution to bass guitar.
Looking forward to the documentary. If Bob Bobbing has anything to do with it, it should be worth watching.
