Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

My heroes are guys like Frank Capra and Elia Kazan and Coen brothers and Terry Gilliam, more so than a lot of bass players at this point in my life. So I've always been an old-film nut and have very much enjoyed doing videos over the years. See more »

Trivia:

The original Primus members are Claypool, Jay Lane (drums) and Todd Huth (guitar). The side project band Sausage is a reunion of the original Primus members (who recorded the Primus demo "Sausage" before Lane and Huth left, hence the side project name). See more »
