Tool June 2019 Newsletter

Tool June 2019 Newsletter

The latest iteration of the Tool newsletter is out, and this month Blair recounts the tale of the band visiting CERN in Switzerland whilst on tour in Europe: Even though some of the CERN workers are Tool enthusiasts (and pose for photos while raising the horns) this doesn’t change my mind as to the true purpose of the LHC. And, besides, its currently down for maintenance (?), so no instantaneous… Read More »Tool June 2019 Newsletter
Tool May 2019 Newsletter

Tool May 2019 Newsletter

Blair has released the latest issue of the Tool Newsletter today, dropping a couple of smallish hints for deciphering, but mostly reiterating how he came to be the Tool webmaster: In the nineteen years of writing for my – er – I mean the band’s website, the hardest thing is knowing something that would constitute real band news – something positive to relay to eager fans – only being unable… Read More »Tool May 2019 Newsletter

Tool February 2019 Newsletter

Another month has passed, and Blair shares with us another Tool newsletter. It’s a pretty dense newsletter, with a few veiled hints at a range of things, from release dates, to a possible Australian tour. I’ve seen a few interpretations around the place, ranging from a April 19 release date, as well as some rumours suggestion Tool could town Down Under as soon as July, but nothing really solid enough… Read More »Tool February 2019 Newsletter
Tool January 2019 Newsletter

Tool January 2019 Newsletter

Some were expecting the latest Tool newsletter from Blair would contain an announcement, and while technically it did, it probably wasn’t the one they are expecting! As has been reported before (I think), Danny has been working on a new book, and it will be out “soon”: I am excited to announce that Danny’s new book Remember the Future is finally at the printers.  Over three years in the making, the coffee… Read More »Tool January 2019 Newsletter
Tool Newsletter December 2018

Tool Newsletter December 2018

The Tool December 2018 Newsletter is out, and since it’s mostly about me (of all people) I can assure you all there there is no actual Tool news contained within. BMB:  How do you get your Tool-related news? How regularly do you check other sites? Do you have sources with other sites that give you a heads up as well as friends close to a band member that give you… Read More »Tool Newsletter December 2018
Tool November 2018 Newsletter

Tool November 2018 Newsletter

Blair‘s Tool Newsletter for November 2018 is out now.  It highlights a recent visit to LA following the Malibu fires, where Blair catches up with Danny Carey and a few other regulars from the Tool family.  The good news is that Blair managed to hear at least part of the new album, though keeps it spoiler free: While walking to his car (parked on yet another deficient alley), Danny emerged… Read More »Tool November 2018 Newsletter
Tool September 2018 Newsletter

Tool September 2018 Newsletter

Blair’s Tool newsletter for September 2018 is out now, and is a pretty short one, that really just highlights Maynard’s recent tweet.  As many of you may know, Blair lives in Las Vegas now which makes getting regular updates from a band not always know for being communicative tough. The good news is that Blair is heading to LA soon, and plans to take up Adam’s invitation to join them in… Read More »Tool September 2018 Newsletter

Tool July 2018 Newsletter

Another month goes by, and we have another newsletter with even Blair admitting there’s not much to share at the moment: Well… I haven’t heard a peep pertaining to studio updates so make of that what you want.  I know that it’s pretty typical in the ‘Tool world’ to be kept in the dark when projects such as recording sessions are ongoing, so what can I say?  I’ve tried to… Read More »Tool July 2018 Newsletter

Tool April 2017 Newsletter

The April 2017 Tool newsletter is out, and it pretty much reinforced the previous post where Danny hoses down album speculation: WTF!!! Are you serious? How in the world could anyone – even the most desperate Tool enthusiast make such an incredible leap? I’ve received email over the years from people who have included a 20 page treatise on the true meaning behind “Lateralus” when the song tracks are re-arranged… Read More »Tool April 2017 Newsletter

Tool March 2017 Newsletter out now!

The Tool March 2017 Newsletter is out, and to save you all some time it’s just a summary of the tour announcements so far.  It suggests it’s a “work in progress” so perhaps there is more tour dates to come (there are certainly rumours of more dates). In the mean time, I’m about to start putting together a rant of things that bug me in the Tool world that I’ll… Read More »Tool March 2017 Newsletter out now!
