Les Claypool interview from the Sacramento Bee
If he's just writing short stories now.....I should like film one of em!
The old Colonel recruited me out to the last three weeks of his tour! So I am now in the lovely Winnipeg on my way to Rothbury and beyond!
(extends e-thumb) Mind if I hitch a ride? That sounds like the most fun thing in the world.
oo, you'll be going to knoxville! i'll tell my dad.
Here's another one, from Uptown Magazine in Winnipeg:
Primus' founder talks about his latest solo album, his fabled Metallica audition and working with some of pop culture's biggest weirdos
and from Fast Forward Weekly in Calgary:
Clown prince of alt-rock embraces film, wine and other curiousities
Coverage continues, from Metro Pulse in Knoxville:
Les Claypool survives the vicissitudes of Primus’ unlikely success in the 1990s
In the last paragraph, he talks about how much easier it is to just go make a record than to just go make a film. Seriously, music is the better art form. You can let creativity fly in an instant, but the filmmaking thing is so fuckin tedious that a lot of the initial creativity in your head is lost in translation. I wish I would have become a musician. I did buy a bass, but it sits untuned in the corner. At least it's another reminder that I suck.
i used to love the mp when i went to utk. they have this great feature called http://www.metropulse.com/news/columns/knoxville-culture/secret-history/. when i was in college, though, they were bought by some conglomo and the content started to go down a bit. my dad sent me one a while ago and it was a sad shadow, not just in content but in graphic design as well.
and now that i read the new stuff, secret history is a sad shadow as well. it's all i, i, i... a far cry from the vivid scenes he used to craft of east tennessee life from the 1700s to the bootlegger days.
