LES CLAYPOOL'S ELECTRIFYING BASS SOLOS IN YOUTUBE

Hi Les! Yeaah, I have been seeing your amazing beats and steel tone bass solos in the YouTube videos. Fluidity of playing and incredibly bold attitude may put you in the Bass Hall of Fame, Music - Hall of Fame & Honor Award For Important Music Achievements, conquering new territories. But come ooon, Les, you're an innovator!

All your live appearances, even putting your music in the alternative field, regarding not only your fantastic bass playing, but your sardonic yet deep writings for theatrical plays, undoubtedly are centered in your skills as a bassist and your clever choice of the best musicians for your band, Les Claypool. Well, your past and current projects too: all your studio work, the Flying Frogs live, etcetera, etcetera...

I play bass. I'm 46, and I play bass since 16 years old. I love bass; I play Steppenwolf's The Pusher; I play Simple Man, Disco Voador (Flying Saucer), Estrada (Road), Memória Tenra (Soft Memory), Arpoador (Ipanema beach)...I play hard-rock/blues, r&b, 'melodic music' (comas mine), alternative...Er...Alternative?! Well, Les, I guess Disco Voador or Estrada are not nor rock nor folk, what are they...? Alternative, yes. They both are exciting songs, I sing in both (though I'm not a singer in a trio or group), we have instrumentals.

Right, Les Claypool. Please write me back saying something, in your best extrovert style. Beautiful, sometimes raw, sometimes romantic, lyric...The cover "painting" of the cover of Of Wales And Woe is fascinating (I love to read about mysticism, past cultures and civilizations, bizarre animals, UFOs); looks like old Errol Flynn/Jennifer Jones' movies!!!!

Thanks a lot,
Carlos Bill.
