UPDATE - 10/9@10:22AM: Les and Geddy also had some dinner at the French Laundry, and Les posted some more photos to both his Facebook page and Instagram, including one with Dave Matthews (thanks RushFanForever).

Primus bassist/frontman Les Claypool posted a photo of himself hanging out and playing some bass with Geddy Lee to his Claypool Cellars Instagram page yesterday. The photo's caption reads:

Claypool has been friends with Rush and Geddy Lee in particular since back in the '90s when Primus supported Rush on tour. The pair of bass masters have a well-documented mutual respect and admiration for each other as musicians. Claypool also helped to induct Rush into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame back in 2012 where he performed a cover of The Spirit of Radio as seen here. Let the rumors of a Claypool-Lee collaboration commence! ;)
