The most original rock bassist to come along in the ’90s was unquestionably Les Claypool. With his oddball sense of humor and funky playing, Claypool took his varied musical influences and created an invigorating and completely inventive style. Well known as the lead vocalist and bassist in the band Primus, Claypool’s funky, creative playing style on the electric bass mixes finger-tapping, flamenco-like strumming, whammy bar bends (unusual on a bass guitar), a Larry Graham-like slap technique, and Geddy Lee influences. He is a multi-instrumentalist, novelist, music producer, film director, wine maker, and avid fisherman. His stage shows at times border on the genre of performance art. His newest side project is an acoustic band called Duo De Twang, which he brings to the Revolution Live stage.
