Blair posted on Toolband today a request from Adam for a specific Diezel Amp:
ADAM is looking for a 1996 Blue Face Diezel VH4 amplifier. Perhaps you can help him? Anyone who knows of an available one (exact year, color & model please!) should email: firstname.lastname@example.org with info. Thanks.
If memory serves me correctly Adam already owns one of these which he uses on tour (and presumably in the studio as well). I guess he needs another one, so if you have on lying around you no longer need, or know someone who has, let them know.
I think I have one in a closet somewhere…
Oh… no nevermind. It’s just a light-brite. It’s still awesome though.
I bet you’re all jealous.
This absolutely means TOOL will soon be in the studio to write another new album, just like they did last decade.
Adam Jones kicks ass. One of the most innovative and original guitar players ever.
Its weird that with his connections he would have trouble finding this amp. Must be pretty damn rare. Maybe this id a good sign for them gearing up to record.
He could easily get this but thinks the TOOL fanbois are dumb enough to give to him for free.
Doesn’t want to pay for it – tight arse.
I very much doubt Adam is expecting to get it for free.
He can have mine for free. All he needs to do is pay for shipping, and reimburse me for the original cost. Plus inflation.
Also, hypothetically speaking, how pissed do you think he would be if I sent him that lite-brite?
Let me quess,they won’t start recording the album until he finds this amp which is so rare it will probably take 5 years
@The Bogan.- no way these things in blue are super rare nowadays! They were only made for a bit in the 90s. I own the silverface like Adam does. He does own a blueface too which have a darker tone then the more recent silverfaces. I’m sure he’d pay a lot of money for one like three times what it’s worth. These are the holy grail of amplifiers and I’m sure he will need to salvage some parts for better ones after using it for practices and touring for so long.
I doubt he, he probably just needs one as a backup.
Here you go Adam, you’re welcome.
Is that a 1996? He needs the correct year.
Please let Adam know that I in fact have one to these exact specs, I will give it to him but only for trade. He gives me one brand new record, I will give him one old ass amp. Just kidding but will someone get this guy the amp he’s looking for so they can get on with it already.
Needs to be a Blue Face model as well.
He’s such a funny guy that Adam Jones.
Trying to make it look like he’s actually writing some new music and all.
An amp doesn’t mean he’s writing, it just means that’s he playing.
You can see his orig in the background of the new pic of Danny’s kit on T.Band
Holy shit! Danny’s selling sacred geometry pillows?!
If this is an indication that they are going back to their best form (1996) then bring it on… (wishful thinking).
