I was turned on to Primus's videos by an old college buddy Dave Lefkowitz (also an SL6 Winner, 5/9/08 ), who just happened to be their manager. I remember when he first introduce me to those guys back in the 80's, they were playing in small bars in San Francisco. Initially, I was unimpressed but by the time the hit the stage at Woodstock in '94 they were one of the best acts. I must say it was a treat to be 3 feet away from Les Claypool on stage. Incredible energy. No one can handle a bass like Les. They're great performers.
I love Primus's music videos. They are one of the only bands who made cool videos. In general music videos tend to be weak, I find them to be too commercialized and poorly filmed. However, Primus managed to put together some really creative pieces. These videos never received enough attention in the mainstream media, thus the award. Congratulations to Les Claypool, Larry "Ler" LaLonde, Tim "Herb" Alexander, the production team and Dave Lefkowitz (manager) for their much deserved Steve Lehman 6 Gold Star Award™.
