Jaco Pastorius

Inducted in 2016, Jaco Pastorius was called “the Jimi Hendrix of the bass,” revolutionizing how bass guitar is played and who was, for many, the best and most influential bass guitarist ever. Best known for his work in Weather Report, with whom he helped define the jazz-fusion sound, the master of the fretless electric bass was a meteor who blazed on to the scene in the 1970s, only to flame out in the 1980s and die tragically at the age of 35.
