Fancy dinner with Maynard?

Want to hob nob with Maynard in a fancy Beverly Hills restaurant while enjoying some fine food paired expertly with his wine? Scarpetta in Beverly Hills are offering you that opportunity on Saturday the 23rd of March for the low, low price of $200 per head:

Sadly Die Eier Von Satan didn’t make the menu, but I’m sure it will be a great night – just don’t ask Maynard about Tool!

now we know why there were two motor-scooter accidents in the past few months, they were trying to jump over a shark.

– did he really lose that much money on his Arizona vineyards and Puscifer?

Sign me up… Then I can troll him with questions of tool , new album etc. and nothing of wine or Puscifer ( both of which I actually enjoy). Just to watch mans head explode

He’ll be sitting at a different table surrounded by security.

Really that’s not a bad price. I did a wine tasting paired with food and it was about $150 per head.

Well i guess this means he’ll be in the LA area. Probably rehearsal for tour.

This is a very normal event for this type of interest. Good wine, good food and in Beverly Hills I’d say this is fair priced… might even been a good deal actually (if this is your sort of thing and it’s definitely my sort of thing). If you’ve ever been to Beverly Hills you’ll know that it’s not going to be in some piece of shit run down building either. It’s not a TOOL related event and I doubt it will be filled with TOOL fans either. If they won’t even spend the $30-$50 for the Opiate re-release I doubt… Read more »

I bet Maynard would be happier if wasn’t such a fucking alcoholic. After quitting drinking for a while, detoxing, and revamping my diet…not only am I now happier in general, but when I have the occasional beer, I would feel like COMPLETE SHIT and pissed off at absolutely anything in my way the next morning. When I was in my drunken stupor of drinking everyday, I didn’t really notice how bad I felt and the negative attitude I would display to others.

Whatever. Wine and dining still sounds like a merry ole’time.

i think some of us can simply enjoy some wine in the evening without ruining our lives. some are able to enjoy spirits without it becoming some big “issue”.

I don’t know that the people going to this dinner are going to have a very long period of time to talk to him individually. I’m sure there are only so many seats being sold and he’ll be sitting at a table with select people more than likely. At these type of events there’s a certain etiquette that goes along with it and that includes not getting up and interrupting someone elses dinner and conversation at another table. If I had to say anything it would be short and to the point… “I love the music you’ve done with TOOL… Read more »

HAHAHA! He did not have big metal teeth. If he did though I would have totally grabbed my camera out of the car and ran back as quick as possible for a picture. Meh.. I’m not big on autographs or photos of celebs. I get to keep that moment in my brain until I get dementia, amnesia, some other form of memory loss or die… Very very nice guy and of all the odd ball people in the world I was glad to have met him for sure. “Hey Mr. Larson how’s the….” “Oh! it’s great!

James said ToolUser said Next will be figurines of the band. I shit you not! Is it just me or are they becoming more of a laughing stock by the minute? This is the most ignorant post I have ever read on this entire forum. Maynard is first and foremost in our minds the lead singer of Tool, but he is also a vintner, and his wine making has nothing to do with his music making with Tool (Puscifer is another story, in my opinion, a hybrid project). Further, his wine making has nothing to do with the image or… Read more »

@crow maybe i misunderstood what you meant in your post and you weren’t the one that stated ToolUser’s post was lame but whatever… whoever I need to direct my last comment at so be it. That’s how I feel.

@CROW What’s your malfunction dude? Why are you such a fucking hard ass? If you haven’t peeled your eye lids back in a while I think you should. The format of this forum is kind of hard to follow when you’re skimming through it sometimes. I don’t get you… You seem to always have a fucking attitude and for what I do not know? If you don’t like it then don’t fucking buy it! If you’re going to verbally assault me then why don’t we settle this in person. I’m sure you’re a puny little limp dick pimple faced fuck… Read more »

@crow …. You can’t be completely serious if you don’t have a real girl… She’ll have to go on an adventure inside of a whale with Geppetto before you can call her that. Get fucked you joke.

sorry for the spat. I love your site and it’s always very informative however, these little forums become a fucking warzone because of people like Crow and by people I mean the ass hole of a wart hog. I’m not sure I’ll be returning for comments anymore. I would think this would be a place of common interest where people can share opinions and not be attacked by other like minded people but I was wrong. Thanks for the site.

Due to the nature of my work I meet celebrities every day. The excitement has worn off years ago, if it was ever even there. One celebrity stood out however. There I was minding my own business when Gary Buesey came up to me, gave me a bear hug and told me how great it was to see me again. He started to chit-chat about old times as he had me pinned up against the wall with his face about an inch from mine. He said to call him and hang out sometime soon. He embraced me again to say… Read more »

Sigh…. Yep, we’re done. This was your big chance to salvage any hope of me taking you seriously. If I chose to be overly-sensitive, I could probably find a way that you directly insulted someone I love. But, I’m not going to bother (fuck, you probably didn’t) – and instead, I’ll just look upon you the same way I look upon your buddies: with utter disdain. Keep the vitriol comin’, buddy. If you were smart, you’d try to dig UP. @crow I want to let it die but missed this post and feel compelled to respond. You see… I’m human… Read more »

I think most of you guys are giving this more thought than is really required. Maynard is trying to establish his wine business, and this type of event is obviously aimed at that. If there wasn’t a Tool album that is “overdue” I expect there would be very few complaints.

Agreed…

joeypants March 16, 2013 at 3:49 pm Zwerewolf: paragraphs, man. Paragraphs. Not trying to be a dick or anything but whew, need to break that stuff up! Dear Joeypants, Your message is crystal clear my friend, paragraphs are prefered. Would that really cause someone to fire napalm at me? The fact that I don’t break my posts up into paragraphs? I mean is it that big of a task to read a post that’s not broken up into paragraphs? I feel like I take up more forum space when I break it up. Do I have the ok to do… Read more »

“He performs behind those screens with Puscifer. The ones that like blow up his face.”

Dear UndKeineEier,

I’ve only seen that on the video of whatever live late night show they performed on. Back when I was giving Puscifer a chance. That screen deal… that’s pretty cool I kind of liked it. I saw Primus a few years ago and they had something similar for a part of their show.

Best Regards,

@Jethro Tool between Bleach, Nevermind, Opiate, Undertow, Gish, Siamese Dream, Rage Against the Machine, Badmotorfinger, Sailing the Seas of Cheese & Pork Soda that summer (93′) when they were all available was the greatest summer ever. My parents talk about the late 60’s but the early 90’s (during the LSD wave) were incredible. When you look back it really added up!!!! Throw in the Beasties….damn, no wonder I never came home for dinner on time!!

Wow – this site has turned into a huge waste of time, HB! I’m not sure when I last read some interesting news or tidbit from any of these whiny self-entitled arrogant pricks. These few arrogant bastards seem to think we all prefer their constant bad breath over no breath at all. Do us all a favor and go fuck yourselves in the ear before you come back here to spew more of your negativity. No wonder MJK hates talking about Tool, cause the fact is about 75% of the fan base consists of high as a kite douche bags… Read more »

Dear Whomever Reads,

If you lump TOOL into grunge when referencing Opiate and are comparing it to other albums released around the same time, I guess you might be able to think that it’s possible for Bleach to be better than Opiate.

However, TOOL has never been anything like grunge and Opiate is basically TOOL’s demo so you’re comparing a full length grunge album to a TOOL EP and… you make no fucking sense at all. Nirvana was great but cannot be compared with TOOL.

Much Love,
Zwerewolf
