I’m sure you’ve all heard the news by now, but recent reports from TMZ tell us that Danny Carey was arrested last night at the Kansas Airport following an alleged altercation with a staff member.

Not much Tool news these days, so it’s nice to have something to post! Many of you will recall that Gibson released a special full size replica of Adam Jones’ Les Paul Silverburst, and that it was pretty damn expensive, as well as hard to get.
