Hmmm...let me think...could it be that Jaco Pastorius was one of the premiere bass players of the Jazz Fusion movement of the Seventies.  And songwriter Leonard Cohen had his songs covered by Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Chris Botti, and others...   Just a guess.

>1987: Jazz-rock bassist Jaco Pastorius died after being beaten outside a

>1934: Canadian singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen was born in Montreal. Also
>renowned as a novelist and poet, Cohen began a musical career in 1966 when
>he sang two of his poems, Suzanne and Stranger, during a reading in New York
>City. The readings soon became concerts, and other artists, such as Judy
>Collins, helped spread his fame by recording his songs. His popularity as a
>singer has been greatest in Europe, and he's made few recordings since the
>late '70s. However, Jennifer Warnes' album of Leonard Cohen songs, Famous
>Blue Raincoat, was a surprise hit in 1986.
>
>1976: A girl lost an eye when she was hit by a beer bottle during the second
>night of a punk festival at the 100 Club in London. Police at first accused
>future Sex Pistol Sid Vicious, who was then the drummer for Siouxsie and the
>Banshees. All punk music was banned from the club as a result of the melee.
>
>1979: The New York Post announced the Beatles would reunite for a benefit
>concert for boat people. They did not.
>
>1993: About 100,000 fans turned out for a Michael Jackson concert in Tel
>Aviv. The audience was among the largest ever for a concert in Israel.
>
>1994: Los Angeles prosecutors announced Michael Jackson would not face
>sexual molestation charges, primarily because his accuser, a 14-year-old
>boy, wouldn't testify. The investigation began in August 1993, when the boy
>claimed Jackson had sex with him several times the previous year. The boy
>received a reported $15-million payment from Jackson to end a civil suit,
>but the boy's lawyer said the payment had nothing to do with the teen's
>decision not to testify in any criminal case.
>
>1947: Don Felder, guitarist and vocalist with the Eagles, was born in
>Gainesville, Fla. Felder became the fifth member of the Eagles in 1974 after
>playing as a session musician on the group's third album, On the Border. The
>Eagles broke up in 1981 after nearly a decade as one of the world's most
>popular rock bands. Felder's first solo work was a song he recorded for the
>soundtrack of the animated film Heavy Metal.
