Another one of the 33 Signed Salivals made available last year is now up for auction on Ebay. Bidding starts at US$0.01 and continues for another 10 days. Good luck for those chasing one of these rarities!
According to ARTISTdirect.com current Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo loves Tool:
“My four-year-old boy loves TOOL!” Trujillo told ARTISTdirect.com. “When I take him to school, we’re playing TOOL all the time, so I definitely connect with them. There’s a lot of bass in that group which is nice. They’re a great band for a bass player to listen to. So believe it or not, my son and I are going through a big TOOL phase!”
He added, “I go through these real technical phases, and I listen to bands like MESHUGGAH and MNEMIC. It’s stuff that’s a little bit complex and takes a lot of patience. Lately, I’ve been jamming a lot to our music. I play through the new songs so I can keep fresh and keep them in my head. I can act crazier on stage if I can play them with proficiency.”

Thanks to Oldesch from Toolarmy for the tip.

Turns out Maynard has another Twitter account, this one more Puscifer related than Caduceus. Last post was:
Just got the master of a new track I did with Renholder and Milla Jovovich. Listening 4 any flaws in the recording process. So far so good.
I’ve got another couple of the Signed Salival shots for you all to enjoy, this time from Will and Korax. Since I’ve got quite a few now I’ve started a new page where you can admire all of them. Thanks to all the contributor so far and I welcome further submissions.
Dan emailed me this link the other day that suggests that a version of the King Crimson classic Schizoid Man by Jeff Fayman featuring Maynard on vocals should see a release in 2009.
Finally, Joel send me a link to an interview SFGate.com did with Maynard, mainly talking about his wine-related escapades.
Finally, Maynard has been hit by the Twitter bug, and his can be found posting at http://twitter.com/caduceuscellars.
This time from Bella‘s copy:
Kat emailed me today with a picture of the Adam Jones doodle from her copy of Salival:
She also sent us a snap of her customised Tool registration plates:
this time from Brandon…
Breck was kind enough to send me some photo’s of the Signed Salival he recieved in the mail today…
To no ones surprise the Signed Salival DVD‘s sold on on Toolarmy for US$200 at around 4:00 PST in less than a minute. Vuduchild (who was lucky enough to score one) sent me this pic which was posted on Toolarmy:
Let the bitching about the price of an item you weren’t forced to buy commence…
Blair posted an update for Toolarmy members desperate for the signed Salival DVD‘s today, mentioning that it’s unlikely to go on the market until after 3:00PM LA time, and that “MERCH” loves Italian, and will probably take the budget right down to the last penny. I take that to mean that he’s not planning to take our budgets to their last penny, more that it’ll be similar to the original price of the item (somewhere in the area of US$50 from memory).
For anyone trying to get a copy – good luck, I’d expect the web site to be extremely busy around that time, so be patient. If you/re not serious about buying the merch at all, I’d suggest avoiding the site altogether. Personally I’d like one, but will be out at a Xmas part today, so probabyl won’t be around when the goods hit the store. If anyone wants to buy me one for Xmas the feel free!
