Blair on Toolband/Army tells us that there’s a Tool inspired Alex Grey painting on Ebay at the moment. According to Ebay Pentacost was painted by Alex following a Tool concert on May 19th, 2006. If you have a wallet that desparately needs a hole burnt in it (bidding is currently at US$2,125) then head over to Ebay to make your bid.
Alex Grey fans should take a look at this link on the CoSM site, which has a couple of slideshows from the recent Burning Man Festival. Tool fans should check it out, since some of the banners from the Lateralus tour were on display. Those whole like looking at men in sarongs should also check it out…
Blksun from Toolarmy shared with me today an email from Amazon, saying that they delayed book Tool by Alex Grey has been published, and will be available in 4-6 Weeks. Good news for those out there looking forward to this. There are many rumours that the live DVD will accompany this book, however given Tool’s recent statements about the live DVD not being done, it would seem this is unlikely
According the the recent CoSM Newsletter I received, Alex Grey will be at the Burning Man festival this year. One of the features of his display will be the Sacred Mirror banners that Tool used on their Lateralus tour. Bastardometer from Toolarmy tells me that Danny will be featured in the new Drum Magazine. The magazine will also feature tabs(?) for Vicarious on drums.
Just got an announcement from the COSM webmaster saying that there’s a couple of previews of a video that Adam and Alex Grey have been working on in an undisclosed location in LA. Check out these videos here: http://www.alexgrey.com/tool.html Vicarious perhaps?
According to the latest Chapel of Sacred Mirrors email, there will be an Entheocentric Salon after the Himalayan voices show on May the 20th. What the hell is an Entheocentric Salon you ask? I have no idea, but according to the program Alex Grey will be doing a Tool talk at 1AM. Entry costs $20 and includes both Audio and Video presentations and music.
Jonathon submitted this link to me this morning, which contains a very interesting interview with both Alex Grey and Adam Jones in relation to the Tool’s 10,000 Days artwork. The article also contains a few audio and visual samples for you all to enjoy. One important thing mentioned is that the Vicarious video, which features Grey’s artwork should be out early July.
End Eye Quote from Toolarmy has posted some awesome pictures of the 10,000 Days listening party held at Alex Grey’s Chapel of Sacred Mirrors last Friday. Check them out here.
Blair mentioned on Toolband/Army today that there will be a listening party at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City on Friday May the 5th from 10pm-Midnight. Feel free to head over there and hobnob with Alex Grey and his mates. More details to come…..
James sent me the link to this interview with Tool today from the Australian Beat website. Quite an interesting interview. Suggests that Alex Grey is working with Adam on the new video, which was something I was unaware of, though not particularly surprising either. Also talks about an Australian tour, and while nothing has been booked, they’d like to be here this year, but if not will definitely be here… Read More »Tool Interview with Beat
