Just got back from the concert - absolutely amazing!

He's on tour right now, I highly suggest grabbing tickets if there are any still available in your town.

I know I'm in a minority, but Les just... leaves me flat. He's very fast, and can hit lots of notes. It's just a question of whether or not he SHOULD hit those notes, y'know?

*ahem*

Which is not to say I haven't loved a lot of Primus in my time.

Emperor Joseph II to Mozart: Just cut a few and it will be perfect.

Mozart: Which few did you have in mind, Majesty?

Oh, now you've done it. Comparing Les Claypool to Mozart is like comparing Bonzo the Fingerpainting Chimp to Da Vinci.

Both are impressive... but not exactly in the same league.

Yeah but who is in the same league as Claypool?

There are a lot of bassists out there with equal or better skill - but the same league? None that I can think of.

Claypool > Mozart ;)
