clay or shingle?

My friend wants to reroof the house (in Southern CA) with clay. However his friend says don't waste money. The firend says the most important thing on the roof is the paper. The clay or shingle is just kind of decoration and not going to stop water from entering the houre.

Is this true?

Its a lot in what he wants how it will look and do you want to spend the $$$$ on the clay roof. The clay could last longer. But if like here they all seam to leak more than the shingles. Is the roof ok for clay can it take the weight???
Also I have had tile roofs and like they try and say it will keep the home cooler "bull". It takes a while in the morning
for the attic to heat up in summer but then the hot tile keep it hot over half the night. So Im for shingles. Get the good ones that have the double over lap look like a shake some .
