Summary
Looks deep inside the life and music of this talented but tormented bass player who revolutionized his instrument and became one of the most potent forces in modern music. By the time he died at 35, he had reinvented the role of the electric bass-- playing melodies, chords, harmonics and percussive effects simultaneously, and bridging the gaps between jazz, classical, R & B, rock, reggae, pop, and punk
