Decoy Album Detected

As noted by Mareckii there is an interesting new post on Danny Carey’s site which talks about a recent BBQ at his place.  It includes this tasty snippet:

As the evening progressed, the party moved down to the lower house (so that even more of Danny’s neighours could be disturbed).  There, in a basement music room filled with analog synths and vintage guitars, those not to bloated began to have a go at the instruments.  After the jamming was over there were reports from those listening to riffs by Adam and Justin (with Danny on drums) that, though unfamiliar, sounded very Toolish.  Having slipped out around 10:30 (with smike in my eyes and visions of 150 mg of Zantac), I didn’t hear these myself, so we’ll just have to take their word of this possible sneak preview of things to come.  Personally, I’ll be it was just a decoy…

I imagine that was written by Blair (though it doesn’t say) and is accompanied by this photo:

Maynard is slowly isolating himself from the guys.

Yeah, the same situation with Justin’s wedding.

But on the other hand attending your band mate’s wedding is kind of an obvious thing to do. I mean I don’t want him to be Justin’s best man but it would be nice to see him there, though I know that’s none of my buisnes. And now when I’m thinking about it I wouldn’t be suprised if Maynard really was there but just hiding from the camera.

I always thought it kinda weird that Maynard was not at JC’s wedding. Was there a reason ever given for him not being there?

In Maynard’s defence, he lives in another state from the other 3. He’s hardly going to just fly back for the sake of a BBQ.

i heard from a friend of mine (a good source) maynard has temp. moved back to L.A. i am assuming it’s for recording purposes. hopefully.

Was it ever confirmed that he was not at the wedding? I know he wasn’t in the few pics that I have seen, but I thought it was just speculation he was absent.

Billy must be more interesting than DC, AJ, and JC. And this didn’t seem like a normal BBQ. Quite a few members of other bands there to hang out with Ben Sherazi (RAJAS) Dale Crover (Melvins) John Z (Volto!) cEVIN (Skinny Puppy) Toshi Kasai (Big Business) Andy Arahood… Read more »

while we’re on the gossip train I’ve always been curious as to what the “schism” in the band was leading up to Lateralus. Maynard has said a few times that that’s what the song’s about and that they were close to breaking up and for some reason I always pictured it as Maynard v. the band for some reason, probably stemming from Maynard’s branching out into other things. It is bizarre how those three are obviously actual friends and he’s never around. You can tell from the writing that Blair has barely interacted with him too and I feel like… Read more »

I bet he was at JC’s wedding and if he wasn’t surely speculation and speculators could consider that the guy is actually fair dinkum having a fucking red hot crack at the wine industry and if he wants to be hands on uber winemaker its not like he can have the grapes adhere to his schedule he has to work to theirs as he has made clear when talking about it.. We all miss random shit. Who wouldnt listen to a 90 minute album with just adam/justin and danny jamming the fuck out anyway…if MJK’s too busy Ill still buy… Read more »

You do not come to the BBQ,

Never thought the communication between them was that bad, unless I read your comments…Anyway, I don’t think fans should concern about this…Each bandmember might be different, but the chemistry works, when they come together to make music!

As long as Tool as a band still have chemistry when the time comes, it doesn’t matter if they aren’t best friends with each other.

Have any of you ever been in a band? It is difficult, and sometimes, you don’t even necessarily like your band mates.

but when it comes to music, the chemistry is there.

I’ve heard MJK, on several occasions, refer to his bandmates as his “brothers” and he would always be there for them. I would imagine his lack of availability has more to do with his vineyard and APC, which seems to be, from an outsiders perspective, the same dynamic that it’s been over the last 6 or 7 years.

I think it’s just Hellboy playing around with what went down leading up to 10,000 Days’ release.

Nice to see you show up around here ebackwardse. I really appreciate what you did for me a couple of years ago with the gear. Still using both, too. Thanks again.

I couldn’t GAF who in TOOL barbecues together, shows up at each other’s weddings, nor is there any “shit that goes in this band that I don’t like”

They make insane music and crazy live shows that’s good enough for me

Yeah…everytime I mosey on over to Toolband.com and read the news section, it seems the band are doing every BUT work on the new album.

I’ve waited patiently for other bands to release albums in the past (waited 3.5 years for Ministry to release Filth Pig…..and literally counted down the days), but this is…..y’know….a bit much.

Now I know how all them Beach Boys fans felt waiting all those years for Smile to be released!!!

In the last band I was in, in would have taken us 15 years to write Rosetta Stoned alone. And we were freaking huge in my neighborhood! But until the next album is released, i can use these guys to help the time pass.
