Citation: Les Claypool, Primus

Posted in Citation on décembre 23, 2009 by johnnylebrun666

« Primus used to play with thrash bands all the time, and I even remember thinking when we did that it was the most ridiculous thing. I was like « I can’t believe Primus is playing with Death Angel and Testament! ». But their fans dug us so it was like « Well, I guess we’ve kinda found a bit of home, » because we’ve always been sorta the oddball guys out. Even on the Ozzfest this year, there was all this talk about Primus not belonging. Everybody’s goin’ « What? Why? We don’t want these guys! They’re not metal enough! » Yet we ended up gettin’ the gig, and the people from the Ozzfest camp were like, « Well, wait a minute, these guys are kinda heavy. » Hey, it just depends on what songs we pick to play in our set, y’know? »
