Primus…..Gone Country??

By Butch Worrell
      Nashville, TN

Les Claypool’s Primus rolled into Nashville for a show at the “Mother Church” of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium.   

Even though Jay Lane’s setlist art might suggest that Primus is going country let me assure you that is not the case! Primus is still that funky, earth shaking musical style all of it’s own.  If the ghost of Captain Ryman was around that night I’m sure his mind  was blown away  by the music.  As was everyone in attendance.

The Jacksons - Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie, played the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem last Thursday night,  almost exactly three years after the death of their famous brother, Michael.   Stepping back into the limelight, the remaining brothers honored their past and demonstrated why they are the forerunners of all the boy bands that followed.
