Claypool did confirm, however, that original Primus drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander, who left the band in 1996, would be returning to the fold once Primus gets back together, at some undetermined future date. "I'm very excited about that," he
Alexander would then replace his own replacement in Primus, former Limbomaniacs skinsman Brian "Brain" Mantia, who's now working for Axl Rose in Guns N' Roses, along with another friend of Primus, guitarist Buckethead.
Speaking of their current employment, Claypool can only speculate on their motives. "I think it's an interesting thing," he says with much laughter. "I'm sure it's good for both of them, as far as exposure."
