Les Claypool is a bassist, moviemaker and fisherman. He is extremely skilled at all of those, and does it in an extremely original way.
Les Claypool, with his awesome name, was born in california. He was the bassist from primus, which might have been one of his best gigs (They played woodstock '94) but he also writes books, does soundtracks for movies, and loves to fish. Claypool, paired with many different people throughout his career, has released 14 movies and VHS tapes.* Claypool's unique style of bass playing came from listning to such bass giants as Stanly Clarke when he was a kid. He uses heavy slap style, some of geddy lee's technique, in an amazing blend.
