January Tool Newsletter

One last post before I hit the road – Blair has posted the January Newsletter on Toolband, which contains plenty of references to the current tour.  It’s full of spoilers for those who are yet to see them live so consider yourself warned!

Once again, absolutely nothing of any relevance or interesting in this “cryptic”, not so cleverly written news letter. Why do I even bother reading these?

So, was it just a tour rehearsal at the sound stage or something better?

that’s it.

i see bands roll up to these sound stages all the time, bringing out all their gear and shit. it’s fun when I can ID which band (easy when the tour bus is logo’d out). not so fun when they’re in a generic rental.

Dude, thats pretty sweet!
 
Are you able to actually chill out and watch/listen?  Or is the area off limits to people outside of the bands crew?

Just as long as it’s not like Staind, Creed, Kings of Leon, Nickelback, etc. than yeah it would be kinda sweet.

Yea, good point.  I guess it would be rather hit and miss.   With a rather large chance of miss rather than hit.

Yeah, I think the time to actually stop fretting over the new album ended, oh I’d say 4.5 years ago or so.

*shudders*

OK, who’s going to make an attempt at the album and song titles for a TººL Christmas album?

I’ll start the ball rolling….

“Fuck Your God – A Very Special TººL XMas”

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like The Apocalypse
All I Want For Christmas Is For L.A. To Be Washed Into The Sea
I Saw Mommy Fucking Satan Claws Last Night
Last Christmas (Ever)
This Crowleymas

Damn, those are weak…

I wasnt talking about them not doing anything, this tour probably helped their creativity if anything. I think its cool as hell they go to Australia and Europe to play shows. I just get aggravated at the newsletters sometimes because of the constant rambling, but it is cool in its own special way I guess. I will wait it out, be patient.
