Les Claypool of Primus on performing at Rush's Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony

Les Claypool of Primus was recently interviewed by the San Francisco Examiner regarding the upcoming release of the band's first album in 11 years - Green Naugahyde. Claypool got on the subject of his performance of The Spirit of Radio at Rush's Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony last year and had this to say:

... “And it’s funny, because I don’t get nervous really,” said the perpetually garrulous Claypool. “The things I get nervous about are strange things, like hanging out at my kid’s school with all the parents. But that Rush thing I was really nervous about — we played ‘Spirit Of Radio’ with cello, vibraphone and marimba, and I said a little speech, and I actually kinda croaked a bit during the speech. And that’s just not like me. But it was certainly strange playing in front of what looked like a society crowd. And the Rush guys! It was like everyone was wearing a monocle or something!” ...

Thanks to Power Windows for the heads up.
