Tool have collected a couple of nominations for this years Grammy Awards.  This year they have been nominated for:

  • Best Hard Rock Performance for Vicarious.  Up against Nine Inch Nails, Buckcherry, Wolfmother and System of a Down
  • Best Record Packaging for 10,000 Days.

They seem to have done alright in the past with Grammy Awards, so hopefully they’ll pick something up again this time around.  Winners will be announced on the 11th of February.  Since Tool will be in Japan then, I guess they won’t be there in person to thank Satan again.  Maybe they’ll send Blair instead.

Of course, it’s hard to get too excited about an award show which has Justin Timberlake and Red Hot Chilli Peppers nominated for Album of the Year…

In other news, Ben emailed me saying he has 2 Sydney Gold tickets that he’s willing to swap for 2 Melbourne Gold tickets.  Let me know if you’re interested in trading
