“He can do Anything!”
John Francis "Jaco" Pastorius is one of the greatest bassists of all time. Far too great for the mortal world. He is best known for his
penis canibalism insane bass skillage. Eventually God became jealous of him and he killed him.
In the 1950's scientists were developing a new form of super-sperm. An experiment to fuse the sperm of Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Jimmy Blanton, and Paul Chambers to create a new breed of godly jazz musicians to combat the new movement of rock 'n' roll that old people in the 50's hated so much.
Products of this experiment were Jaco Pastorius as well as Stanley Clarke, John Patitucci, Will Lee, Randy Brecker, Mike Brecker, Herbie Hancock, Al DiMeola, Lenny White, Chic Corea, Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Victor Bailey, and unfortunately Kenny G.
Jaco first picked up a bass four months before he was born. Jaco overcame the fact that his fingers had barely formed and composed the song "Portrait of Tracy" that would later be featured on his self-titled solo debut. Other songs from composed he in the uterus are "The Chicken", "Okonkole Y Trompa", and "Kuru/Speak Like a Child". Jaco's mother died in child birth because of the Fender Jazz Bass that was ejected from her vagina. Of course if she had survived she would have been wheel-chair bound for the rest of her life.
Jaco's Work in the Afterlife
Jaco is currently working on a jazz-funk fusion album with Jesus(Drums), James Brown(
Angelfucking Vocals), Marvin Gaye(Vocals/Piano), Jimi Hendrix(Vocals/Guitar), John Coltrane (Saxophone), and his semi-father Miles Davis (Trumpet). The group's name is Lamb of God Soul Brother. Due to the catastrophic effects of Lamb of God Soul Brother's internet leaks, their new album Black Jesus will be released only in Compton, Brooklyn, Harlem, and Kenya. It's creators feel these are the only places black enough to hear their music.
"Bass of Doom"
Jaco's "Bass of Doom' was a Fender Jazz Bass that he plied the frets out of with a butter knife. Then he put an epoxy resin on it so his fretboard wouldn't turn into the same kind of surface Fred Flintstone created whilst anxious. The result was possibly the most badass instrument ever conceived by man. The exact model was reissued a little while go, however it would be sadly noted that thousands of souls were sacrificed during the making of these basses because the essence required to make just one of these basses were so great. The leftover ashes were used for the epoxy resin coating of the fretboard.
Shortly before God killed Jaco his Bass Of Doom vanished... *x-files music*... Recently a man who claimed had the Bass of Doom rocked up to Will Lee's apartment but this bass was really dressed up in disguise (it wasnt really a Fender instead it was a Sadowsky cunningly disguised as the Bass of Doom as they usually do...). The real Bass of Doom looks nothing like the original Bass of Doom or the 'wannabie' Sadowsky Bass of Doom. Some say instead it is black with a white scratch plate, rather reminiscent of the bass either Chris Frangou uses to destroy universes with, and some say it was turned into a trumpet and played by Maynard Ferguson.
Life on Earth
Apart from being an amazing bass player, Jaco was pretty fucked up. He was a drug addict, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder later in his life, and to top it all of he huffed cats like a mofo. He also impregnated women for miles with his bass playing causing thousands of illegitimate "Jaco babies" to be born in the early and mid 80's. As Jaco's life began to go into a downward spiral, God saw weakness in him and began plotting his attack on Jaco.
Because of his godly bass skillz. God himself became angry with Jaco. God feared Jaco would overtake him as supreme ruler of the universe. He then killed him in the most embarrassing way possible. He took the form of a bouncer at a Florida nightclub and beat the living fuck out of him. This however only prolonged God's reign as almighty. Morgan Freeman would eventually rise to power somewhere in the late 90's. The movie Bruce Almighty was a conformation of this.
Life after Death
After his death Jaco now resides in Birdland with his friend and co-conspirator against jazz Joe Zawinul and his pet emu Chris Frangou.
