Primus' Les Claypool called the other day to
To Noise that, yes, drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander is no longer a member of
Primus. Claypool told us that while guitarist Larry LaLonde and himself wanted
the group to move in one musical direction, Herb was headed in another. "Over
time this developed into a rift that was eating away at the stability of the
band," said Claypool. A new drummer is expected to be announced shortly, and
Primus expect to begin recording another album in December.
