Les Claypool is not Les Claypool

The guy on the left is Les Claypool III. I just saw his name in the credits of Ghost in the Shell, on the thousandth time I watched that movie.

In 1954, she married Les Claypool Jr, a Los Angeles DJ and son of a prominent political editor and columnist for the Los Angeles Green Sheet. In the late '50s, they relocated from Hollywood to Pacoima. They divorced shortly thereafter.

In 1991, Arlene moved from Pacoima to Newhall, CA and lived there until her passing. She is survived by her son Leslie and ...
