“Toolarmy need your help” Clarification

I received an email from Alan Jones last night (Adam’s brother and Tool’s attorney) who confirmed that yesterdays request for Tool  advertising material is 100% legitimate.  He mentioned that it is for a legal problem regarding litigation with the insurance industry as a fallout of the case against Cam De Leon.

Edit: Alan wanted to let you all know that this is definitely no reflection on Cam.  Tool have buried the hatchet with him and that case is long over.

Basically what they are after are examples of pure advertising (Tool show posters, newspaper and magazine ads) that contain those specific pieces of Cam-Tool related artwork.  Note that Tool have copies of the art themselves – they are particularly interested in it being used in advertising.

If you do have any of the following, the please visit this site and submit them:

  • 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
  • Infiniteeth

Alternatively, if you really don’t want to submit your information on that site, send the scans to me and I’ll email them to Alan directly.

I’m just glad the boys are focusing their energy on Cam instead of a new album.

Note my recent update.  Alan stressed the case isn’t about Cam, it’s about the insurance companies associated with the legal case.  The issue with Cam is long over.

Great news, these images are going to be used for advertising so lets hope that its advertising  for some kind of upcoming release of something from that era.

This isn’t anything that has to do with a new release.

Is it me, or does there seem to be a lot of soap opera drama going on with all things Tool related lately? I guess Elvis did the same thing when he got so huge back in the day. Funny thing though, it was hidden and private. Until his posse wrote a sleezy tell all after his demise. Meh…cue some Marvin Gaye “What’s going on” ahhh all is right again with my aching chakras, from all this rut.

By the sounds of it, Tool really shafted Cam De Leon. Taking his “contributions for granted”.

They called him the “closet fifth member of Tool” on its website. Cam De Leon wasn’t happy with his under compensation so they probably went with a one dimensional artist like Alex Grey. Which is a shame really, given De Leon’s talent.
