The wonderful musician Jaco Pastorius, here on one of his Fender Jazz Basses. He had severe problems with mental health (bipolar disorder has been suggested) and the illegal drugs (self-medication?) probably didn’t help either. Despite being among the world’s absolute most talented bass players, working with Pat Metheny, Weather Report and Joni Mitchell, he was considered unreliable and had a hard time holding down a gig. He was homeless for periods and tragically died at 35 following a violent altercation with a doorman at a bar.
His music lives on!
