    Les has a one-of-a-kind sound, nobody has ever sounded quite like him, and I doubt anyone ever will.

    Les Calypool is generally regarded as a hugely talented bassist, comparable to other greats such as John Entwhistle, Voctor Witten, and, of course, Joca Pissedoverus.
  11. Les Claypool and his brother Les Calypool are both grrreeeeat bassists. I really, really, hate their tone though...

    HAHAHA, I just had to laugh at stingray's signature, THE BIG LEBOWSKI RULZ!!!
  15. "dont **** with the Jesus"
  16. A few things to say- Claypool is the amazing assist from primus, he kicks ass, and the big lebowski is the best damn movie ever. "You're out of your element, Donny!"

  19. Hold on, thought u were someone else! What do you mean "I am the walrus?" What does that have to do with big lebowski or les calypool? The Beatles??
