Les Claypool Turns Personal Tragedies into New Primus Song

(Rock News Desk) Primus mainman Les Claypool has a lot to be happy about after reactiving his band with long-time "missing" drummer Jay Lane and coming to terms with the "funk" label sometimes attached to his band. But he's also experiencing difficult times in his personal life, and he's poured them into new track Tragedy's A-Comin' even though he's done so with his trademark twisted approach.

"Just that line says it all," Claypool tells MusicRadar. "There's a lot of crazy sh*t in my life right now. My mom is fading away from us; she's not going to be around much longer. My little nephew was diagnosed with leukaemia at only two months old. I have friends battling cancer.

"When I wrote that song I was just like, 'Holy f**king hell.' Whatever metaphor you want to use, into everyone's life a little rain must fall. Well, there you go: 'Tragedy's A-Comin'." more on this story
