Just thinking about Primus makes it clear how bland the rock music world has become. There was a time, and it wasn't all that long ago, that MTV and radio stations played what some people -- okay, maybe just one person, me -- affectionately refer to as "crazy people music." Primus was just such crazy people music.
We'd be hard pressed to find a band today that can blend absurdity and prog - rock - jazz - fusion - funk - metal to create radio-friendly hits.
