Francis 'Rocco' Prestia, the original bassist of Tower of Power, died today aged 69. He was a super influential bassist who pioneered some techniques that bass players in all sorts of different genres still use today. He also taught Jaco Pastorius, who ended up becoming one of the greatest jazz-fusion musicians of all time. This song has one of the best examples of his brilliant driving and energetic style. He'll absolutely be missed.
