Primus frontman Les Claypool has had quite a few bands over the years, and he’s bringing back Col. Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade for 2023. The group last performed in 2005, making this their first performances in 18 years.
The band will play 40 stops on the “Summer of Green” tour, spanning from mid-May through mid-July, wrapping July 15 in Phoenix, Arizona. As the name at the front of the moniker, Claypool has been the constant throughout a revolving list of musicians who have played in the group. For this run, Claypool will be joined by guitarist Sean Lennon, keyboardist Harry Walters and drummer Paulo Baldi, while saxophonist Skerik and percussionist Mike Dillon will also join the group.
