Formed in 1984, Primus were, in the beginning, an underground phenomenon. Initially, there were five Primus band members: Les Claypool (bassist/vocalist), Larry "Ler" La Londe (guitarist), Tim "Herb" Alexander (drummer), Todd Huth and Jay Lane. Lane and Huth left the band in 1988 and now Primus perform as a three-piece. They released their first album Suck on This in 1989, however, it was in the years between their third and fourth albums that Primus's cult following began to expand rapidly. Their 1991 album Sailing the Seas of Cheese went Gold and Pork Soda hit the Top Ten. In 1993, Primus also had a headline slot at Lollapalooza festival, they definitely weren't underground anymore. Primus have split up numerous times over their 30-year plus career. However, since 2010, the band have stuck together and continue to create music. In all, Primus have released nine studio albums and been on numerous tours. So, if you want to hear Primus music live, here at StubHub you can buy all the Primus tickets you could ever need.
More funk-rock pioneers
While, undoubtedly, Primus are the quirkiest and possibly most 'ungettable' funk-rock band, they are certainly not the only pioneers in this genre. Red Hot Chili Peppers are a fine example of a band that mix funk and rock seamlessly and have garnered fans and accolades worldwide. Jane's Addiction are another great example of this genre and were one of the most hotly pursued bands of the 1980s.
