Things are moving so slowly in Tool land at the moment, I’ve run out of material (and motivation) for regular posts.  So while Tool are in stealth mode (likely for the rest of the year I expect) rather than bombarding you with with stuff that is only somewhat interesting, I’ll do a weekly update.  This update will include Tool related stuff, relevant side projects, and even a few updates from bands that have supported Tool, or I feel would generally interest Fourtheye readers.

In this weeks episode:

  • Justin gets a new bass
  • The Art of Work, with Maynard James Keenan
  • The Melvins rate legal weed

Got anything that might interest Fourtheye readers?  Let me know!

Justin gets a new bass

Adam posted on Instagram a pic of Justin with his new Warwick bass.

Some of you may notice the whiteboard behind, suggesting that perhaps they’re working on new stuff.  Frequent AJ followers on Instagram may have also noticed

The Art of Work, with Maynard James Keenan

Maynard is featuring in a number of short episodes recorded for the Revolver website, in which he discusses a range of topics – mostly about what inspires him to make music and wine.

Part 3 and 4 are yet to arrive, but keep your eyes peeled

The Melvins rate Legal Weed

The Melvins are always good for a laugh, and this interview for Pitchfork media has a few solid chuckles:

Don’t forget they have a newish album A Walk with Love & Death (which isn’t bad).  And Dale has a solo album called The Fickle Finger of Fate (which is better).
