Incredible that this man has financial woes.
He was indispensable in the Second Great Quintet - the unfortunate joke he was George Coleman's Hip Replacement - increasingly becoming recognised as the greatest jazz group ever assembled; he was co-conspirator in Weather Report, all but universally recognised (alongside Mahavishnu) as the most important Fusion Band of the lot; alongside his highly credible solo work and his contributions as sideman on many seminal albums.
What a crazy upside down world we live in when you consider some of the ludicrous white pop-stars who are multi-millionaires.
