Another interview with Adam

Adam must have a few things to get off his chest at the moment as there is another interview with him, this time with Erin Broadly of LA Weekly.  Once again it’s largely about is artwork rather than Tool.

It also has this amusing anecdote:

Adam Jones: Oh, absolutely. I’ve got a funny story for you. Tool was in Denver at Red Rocks and it was the second show we played. Those shows went great; it was really fun. But I was trying to hook up with Buzz from the Melvins because they were playing a show at the Ogden Theater and I realized we’re not going to make the show, they’re going to be done. I was like, "Hey, I’ll try to get out as fast as possible to see you guys," and they said, "Ok, we’ll wait for you." So I was telling everyone, "I really wanna go see the Melvins," and they said I could do a runner after the show — they’d get me right off stage, into a van, and get me out of there. [Laughs] I jump in the van after our show with Maynard and there are two cop cars. They put on their lights so we had this police escort going 80 or 90 miles an hour down the freeway to go see Buzz from the Melvins.

[Laughs] My god.

Adam Jones: [Laughs] It was the most rock cliche moment of my life. It was really funny. Those guys were all laughing at me. I told Buzz and Buzz goes, "Yeah, I had one of those once but they took me to jail."

Thanks to ebackwardse for the tip.

if I’m lyin’, i’m dyin’, but i swear this is true: JUST LAST NIGHT i asked Buzz if he was busy on monday night, (since their tour ends in san jose tomorrow) and if he’s not, then to give a Adam a call about maybe joining Tool onstage in San Francisco! oh guess i should’ve started this story with saying that i was in eugene for the melvins show last night… no, unfortunately, i’m not a close personal friend of Buzz or anything. i was just the drunk guy wearing the Tool shirt at his show. lol. oh and yes, the… Read more »

that’s funny because the night before, Maynard ran off the stage right away. they didn’t do the usual group hug and bow. Then the 2nd night Danny and Justin looked lost up there, trying to look cool. They hugged and waved and all that, then walked off stage. Awkward.
