Wasnt Les Claypool the first choice for Metallicas new bass player but the record/managment company were having none of it because he didnt fit the image or some shit?
i think he was approached for it but he said he didn't know how to play heavy metal

On the Behind the Music they said he auditioned but didn't get it in the end. Seems James thought Claypool was "too good".
