Dean Ween Shares Note Of Thanks To Les Claypool
“Les Claypool was a great friend to me during the difficult period after my band broke up. It was him that convinced me not to quit music altogether, to start a band with some friends, get in a van and drive around and have fun playing music again, like it is supposed to be. Truth. And he did us a huge solid by putting us on some Primus dates in front of thousands of people. So thank you Les, for being a true friend and motivator and backing it up by asking us to open up for them, it wasn’t even something we solicited, he called me personally. Great dude and a great friend,” Deaner wrote. We’re still awaiting word on the status of the fishing show Claypool and Melchiondo produced last year.
The instrumental “Dickey Betts” has been a staple of Dean Ween Group live shows of late. Deaner has added soundboard audio of the version the DWG laid down on Friday in Big Flats, NY to fan-shot video of the tune:
Next up for the Dean Ween Group is a visit to the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach, DE on July 10.
