Your Favorite Dead Musician

JACO PASTORIUS


Not a reconizable name but he revolutionized the bass and a bass-style which is still in use today.

Jaco Pastorius rose to fame in the late 70s with Weather Report, went solo, and contributed to albums by Ian Hunter, Herbie Hancock, and Joni Mitchell.

His mental health destroyed by bipolar disorder, he died a horrible death in 1987.

John Bonham
May 31, 1948 - Sept 25, 1980

John Bonham is the most influental Rock Drummer of all times.

Describing the style of John Bonham's drumming instantly conjurs up visions of the thunderous power he created. His contributions to rock music were revolutionary, and his talent unmatched and irreplaceable. You can only imagine Jimmy Page's reaction to first seeing him in 1968, ending his search for a new drummer to form a new band, the New Yardbirds (later renamed Led Zeppelin.)

Every time I listen to Zep I think how sad it was for this guy to be lost so early.

Naw, probably better off that he's dead. :yes: I mean he's not as good a musician as you and he doesn't attempt to score vag by postings pics of himself playing at a childrens benefit for cancer at a spin off gore forum, but then again he probably doesn't care right now.
