Indeed. :yup:

Sadly, he died penniless - beaten to death in the gutter. :(
His demise was quite tragic indeed. It seems as though he had some really deeply rooted psychological problems that lead him to an unhealthy place in life. According to most of what I've read, Pastorius was “getting himself together” when that douche bag bouncer beat him into a coma. Some “alpha male jack-off” (borrowing a phrase from the master George Carlin) ultimately killed a fine creative individual whose equal in the world of jazz bass has yet to be heard.
