Les Claypool, lead singer and bassist of Primus turns 52 today, he is arguably the greatest bassist ever, and he shares his birthday with Jerry Lee Lewis. 


I never new that I had been introduced to Les Claypool the first couple of times I saw Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

The first time I herd Les Claypool and knew it was Les Claypool was when a friend of mine made me listen to 'Tales from the Punchbowl' until all I could here in my mind was 'Wynona's Big Brown Beaver.'

Les Claypool may not be the best bassist ever, that was my opinion, it's also troll bate. However, Les Claypool is defiantly in the top 5, he is my personal favorite, because I like his style.

Some people sing songs about life, too many people sing songs about love & loss, and some people sing songs that sound like complete gibberish.

Les Claypool on the other hand, sings songs about the weirdest, coolest, funniest stuff I have ever herd, and most important, he did a song with Tom Waits.

Happy Birthday Les Claypool!!!!
