Primus’ Tim Alexander Suffers Second Heart Attack

Danny Carey (Tool) To Drum For Primus For Upcoming Dates

According to Loudwire, Tool’s Danny Carey, will be taking over drumming duties for Primus, for select dates, on their U.S. tour. Carey will be filling in for Tim Alexander, who is taking some time off to rest, after undergoing successful heart surgery.

Primus frontman, Les Claypool, said the following about Carey filling in:

“The mighty Tim ‘Herb’ Alexander is a polyrhythmic Viking of extreme and unique talent so the one person that we thought could step into his shoes and do it justice is the one and only Mr. Danny Carey. Whereas Herb is the stocky, Easter Island-faced, boulder of a drumming human, at nearer to seven feet, Danny Carey is the mighty redwood tree of percussion; towering over his kit like a golden-haired noble spruce.

I can’t wait to see that menacing grin of Danny’s shine out as we pound our way through ‘Here Come the Bastards’ and ‘Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers.’ He’s a dear old friend and we are extremely excited to have him aboard, and I would wager we are equally if not more intrigued than most by what kind of sounds are going to come out of the three of us once we actually get in a room together and do more than just consume fancy booze.”
