Re: Les dosent do hand shakes.

I worked backstage at Yuri's night a few years ago. Got to talk with Les for about 20 minutes after his set. In that time, about 8 people randomly walking by got the potato thing. I ended up shaking his hand. Who knows the rhyme or reason why.

Though he did remember me from the NYE show that year, which was a few months prior to Yuri's night. He had seen our Primus drumline show we did back in my senior year of high school and we got the chance to talk to him about it then.

I hope you came between the cushions of the couch.

Re: Les dosent do hand shakes.

i remember the first time i met him in 04 and i was absolutely starstruck. had no idea what to say to my hero. it was surreal. i immediately put my arm around him for a picture but was denied the pleasure. "no prom shots dude". so i said "sorry, i forget you have no idea who i am!" we shared a laugh and a potato. i've been fortunate enough to shake hands with beef though. even a quick conversation about the residents, which was really cool of him considering how many people wanna stop and chat him up

Re: Les dosent do hand shakes.

I was surprised when I met Skerik outside of the Vic Theatre in Chicago back in 2008 how star struck I was. My wife said, they is he in the band, and I turned around and saw him and screamed SKERIK! Then we chatted for about 5 minutes and I felt like I was a bumbling idiot....my regret was I didn't ask to watch their sound check or at the very least request they play Holy Mak that night.

Skerik is very approachable. I've had a few conversations with him. I thought we were buds. Then I walked up to the DKG booth after a Primus show in Iowa in my pig mask. Skerik and Houser were all impressed with the pig mask. I took off the mask to better talk to the guys and upon seeing my face, Skerik says, oh it's you.............

Damn

Hey, at least he remembered you. My buddy got all excited when we went to see GAT at the double door because he went to take a leak and Skerik was using the urinal next to him. Off topic story, that same night at set break I had to take a leak myself and going back to the bathrooms just made for the first toilet I saw. When I came out there was a line of chicks outside the door, whoops.

I pissed in urinal next to Derrick. He was helping the DKG boys set up while they had a night off from a Claypool show. The next day he acted as if he didn't know me.

On a side note, my 13 y/o was wearing his DKG shirt tonight.

I pissed in a urinal next to Brad Houser. I looked over his shoulder. Damn, he has a huge dick.

Re: Les dosent do hand shakes.

Query: Didn't Les have wrist or hand problems a few years back? Canceled a few gigs even? Maybe his doctor told him not to shake hands with overzealous fans to prevent further damage.

He broke his right pinky finger during the shooting of Pig Hunt.
