An email came out today from Toolarmy (I didn’t seem to get a copy, despite being a member), asking for help in locating some specific pieces of Tool art. If you have any thing listed below in your collection, then please check out the website mentioned and submit it.
Dear Tool Army,
The band would greatly appreciate a little help. We are looking for samples of advertisements that contain certain artwork that were used in advertising Tool shows and merchandising. Specifically, we are looking for flyers, posters, magazine ads, newspaper ads, etc., that advertise Tool and contain any of the following artwork. – Tool Wrench
– The eye from the cover of Aenima
– The picture of the white box on the back of Aenima
– The Opiate Priest that appears on the cover of the Opiate
– The Stinkfist characters
– The Prison Sex characters
– Novus Opiate Seclorum
– Medicine Man
If you have anything like this, please scan and send the picture of the whole ad to us athttp://www.pure-eng.com/~toolemail/. If you know when and where the ad was posted – that’s even better.
Visit Our Website Thanks for your support!
Feel free to speculate on what this is really about below! Thanks to funguy for the tip!
Update: There is some speculation that this may be a scam. I don’t think it is, but have sent an email to Alan Jones (Adam’s brother, and Tool’s attorney mentioned in the email) for a comment. In the meantime, if you’re especially protective of your email address, don’t submit anything.
Update 2: It’s not a scam
