As talented as Pastorius was, he was diagnosed as bi-polar, and despite medications, lived on the streets for weeks at a time. He died in 1987 at age 35 from head injuries incurred during an altercation with a bouncer at a nightclub in Florida.
Have a great weekend folks, see you back here tomorrow.
[Folks, I still got some computer glitches left over from earlier this week. I had to go into safe mode just to uninstall Microdork’s Service Pack 3. Unfortunately the uninstall takes some stuff with it that affects FireFox as well as some other applications. The computer was limping, now it’s walking. Tomorrow I hope to get it running again. Guess I gotta buy more RAM.]

Weather Report was way ahead of their time jazzbo wise, or maybe they hit it at just the right time in order to get my attention. Jaco Pastorius was amazing.
