Over on her Instagram, Willow recently posted a video that features her jamming out and picking her guitar to that of Primus. The caption associated with this Instagram post reads, “I FUCKING LOVE PRIMUS
😩😩😩😩😩😩🥲😩😩😩😩😩 If you haven’t listened to <Conspiranoid> … that’s a big issue”

For context, Conspiranoid is the latest EP that Primus have put out; it features three tracks in total. While many of Willow’s followers left positive comments on her video, one comment really stands out – that being a positive comment from Primus frontman Les Claypool!

Commenting on Willow’s video, Claypool wrote to her, “Fine guitar pickin’ there young fiery lass.”

We think that is super cool of Les Claypool to have gave Willow a shout out! It is always an awesome feeling when a band/artist you look up to reaches out to you and provides some kind words. You can check out the video featuring Willow’s guitar picking below.
