Hey you guys.
Anybody know any popular bassists in rock and pop bands that have been influenced by jaco pastorius?
Im doing a whole investigation about jaco pastorius and Im just gona do a small and brief section on who have been influenced by the great man himself.
References would be essential too.
Thanks.

3. Fender Precision
Through:

most bassists. I mean, everyone using a fretless was influenced by him, not always directly, but without him, they would not be fretless. that's on it's own a lot of bass players.

Pretty much every professional bassist has been influenced by Jaco in some way, shape or form.

Yes, I know this.
I know the obvious main ones, I was hoping for some actual names, and reference points. Internet sites or books.
I just have to point someone out in a rock genre.

Nah man i have to disagree with that. Bass playing in the early 70's late 60's was totally divided, There was the funk bassist such as Larry Graham, the Jazz bassists such as Jaco and the more rock based bassists such as John Paul Jones or John Entwhistle.

They all went on to influence different groups of bassists, maybe by now the young generation of bassists are being more influenced by Jaco because he's more well known. But nowhere near every professional bassist

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

I have a feeling Sting was quite heavily influenced by Jaco, and he does use a fretless bass. I'm not entirely sure though

Michael Manring toured with Jaco, so that would be a very good point to use for where the influence came from.

Sting and Victor Wooten were both influenced by Jaco
I like rap, feel free to use that as an argument against me.

I know he's probably not popular here but Tom Jenkinson (in his more melodic stuff as squarepusher) has some really obviously jaco-influenced stuff.

Every modern fusion/jazz player has been influenced by Jaco in some way, whether they admit to it or not.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

Not me. I actually have distaste for most of his music >_> Mainly I dont like his tone. Its great for harmonics but not much else. Sure, you can say some of my influences liked him, but at that rate you could say Bach is an influence for me (well, he is, but thats besides the point)

^point taken, but in many ways we are the sum of all those musical parts in our playing. The reason I know about the answers.com site, its because a guitar teacher I know had his students list out three of the musicians who influence them. Then from there back a "generation" and three people that influenced those musicians. It was an interesting exercise that brought out some surprises.

Mic Todds so damn amazing!

very clean tone and playing in that video.

I like how Micheal Manring did that song way better though.
