He's great, but my opinion is his style is something that is so unique only he can really pull it off. It's the foundation of the Primus sound, it doesn't really work if you drop Les into another band. It's why Metallica didn't hire him after Cliff died...they're like "we respect your skill and style but...funk won't sound good in a thrash context".What is your opinion on Les Claypool? Guy's one of my favorite bassists and he mainly does slap bass.
But I mean there's also no proof Les isn't a virgin so...my point still stands.
