Happy Birthday Mr Jones

On this day way back in 1965 the word bore witness to the birth of Adam Thomas Jones, who we all know went onto become the guitar play for Tool, as well as occasional poster creator and movie sculptor.  Adam will be on tour tonight, and who knows if they have any special plans for him on the evening.  Maybe the crowd should break out into happy birthday when the lads a taking a bow following the show.

Anyway, Here’s a nice version of Lateralus, which contains not one, but two of my favourite Jones solos:

Totally spaced on wishing him happy birthday last night. Oh well, he probably would have found it creepy anyway.

Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales.
Stare at beautiful women.
She’s looking at me, man.
Uh, no, she’s looking at me. Dude.

One Alan Jones posted this picture to Adam’s Facebook wall. From the looks of Alan, they’re brothers.

An another piece of trivia for the day: It was Alan who inadvertently let it slip that Tool would be on Guitar Hero.

So did he sue himself for yapping?

That’s an awesome looking cake! Hopefully he got out on the town in Vegas or had one hell of a party somewhere. I was hoping that the crowd would bust into a Happy Birthday thing at the end, but it never happened. I wasn’t going to be the one to start it, lol..
