This picture of Jaco Pastorius busking in NYC was apparently taken by Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, presumably in the mid-1980's.

Yaa I think he was homeless

Yaa I think he was homeless around this time and used to hang around Washington Square Park often playing basketball. I guess he was playing "Louie Louie" for spare change when this picture was taken.

Check out the Milkowski book on Jaco some time, it's an interesting read, but sad.

and there also is a documentary film on Jaco made by the bass player in Metallica as well.

He doesn't look good. He was really going downhill at that point.
