C'mon... Not a high skill level? Sloppy? No imagination? that's a little harsh... I might have been off with the Fedor comment, so I'll retract my statement and call him the "Wanderlei Silva" of bassists... How bout that?
He's one of my personal favorites... While he's no Wooten or Burbritch or Schools(sp?)... I love his style and his showmanship... have you heard this group in particular? If you haven't might wanna check them out: Les on bass/vocals, Tre Anastasio(phish) on guitar/vocals, & Stuart Copeland(Police) on drums...
I like him, dont get me wrong, but he goes out of time, hits bum notes, makes loads of string noise etc when he is playing, thats just part of his style!
And yeah, I have heard pretty much all of Les's projects other than Primus, I used to be a big les fan
If you like Primus you should definitely check out Attention Defecit, they are a crazy Jazz fusion band with Herb on Drums, Michael Manring on Bass and the guy from Testament on guitars.
