Two Bass Legends

Primus’ Les Claypool revealed that Rush’s Geddy Lee gave him bass lessons ahead of the former’s tribute tour to Rush called “A Tribute To Kings.” Claypool took to social media to post a photo of him and Lee. He captioned it with, “Learning from the master…”

It’s interesting because Claypool is a legend himself. He’s definitely no slouch on the bass, and it’s not like he’s so far behind Lee. Besides, Claypool is an influential figure in prog rock. So, seeing both of them play bass together is nothing short of spectacular.

“A Tribute To Kings” will feature a mix of Primus’ own material and songs from Rush’s platinum-certified 1977 album “A Farewell To Kings.” It was supposed to kick off in 2020, but was pushed back to 2021. The tour will now launch on August 10, 2021 in Boise, Idaho, and wrap up on October 25 in Arizona.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Claypool revealed how the tribute tour came together.

“I texted with him — I keep in touch with Geddy — just to make sure we weren’t trodding on something weird,” he said. “So I checked in with him to see what he thought of it, and he was excited about the notion.”
