Adam posted on Facebook a little while ago a summary of his experiences at the WWE gig:
~Wow! What a blast. Triple H and his wife Stephanie are big tool fans and asked me to open the show on live international television. Pretty FN crazy. Vince McMahon ask for a demo so i emailed him one. How cool is that? All the Wrestlers i met that night were so encouraging and supportive (thanx!). John Cena joked "just dont pull a Christina Aguilera…" And with that said, i apologize about the flub up in the first verse. Some of the camera guys ran by me so close that i thought something was wrong. Totally broke my concentration. But to me the rest was a Home Run! The crowd was great. And i will now demand that at the end of any future solo i do there are epic FIREWORKS. ~big xx to Terry
There’s also finally some decent coverage of the performance up on Metal Injection.
Sounds like he enjoyed it, and no doubt it would have been a fun event to play at. While there appear to be plenty of readers who dislike the idea of Adam “lowering” himself to play such an event (no doubt these same haters would have no objection if he played at their event of choice) I personally don’t mind it. If we put people up on pedestals then the only way they can fall is down…
Ever wanted to watch a crazy jam featuring Danny, Neil Peart, Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland. Well now you can! Head over to Neil Peart’s website, and view Danny playing some trombone and drums on an unnamed track.
There’s some great footage on http://dannycarey.org of the Tool/Rammstein incident at the Adelaide Big Day Out in February. It’s been recorded be Breck who’s the projection director. Excellent audio and visual quality!
Magnus posted in the Fourtheye forum a list of five Youtube videos from a previously unreleased (at least I haven’t seen it!) documentary with Danny Carey. Danny talks about a range of topics from his influences, to gear and touring. There’s also plenty of soundcheck footage included as well some cool live footage. Here’s part 1:
Spin has a video from the first A Perfect Circle show a few nights back in Arizona. Doesn’t have any live audio, however the quality of the footage suggests that rumours of a live DVD of some description are very promising, and hopefully very likely!
Enjoy the gigs those of you who were lucky enough to score tickets!
