Mark emailed me today to let me know that he’s posted his Lateralus Signed Vinyl on Ebay. It looks to be in great condition, though it doesn’t feature a special signature by Adam like some lucky individuals managed to get. Bidding at the moment is at US$300 and seems to be shipping to the US only at this stage. Which is a shame, because given the strong Australian Dollar at… Read More »Signed Vinyl on Ebay
News regarding releases of Tool material
I had a chance to read the recent Guitar World article with Adam Jones, and it’s one of the best Tool articles I’ve read for a while. It reveals plenty of new info and some insight into Adam’s guitar playing. Here are some points I know most of you are interested in: The first video for 10,000 Days (presumably Vicarious) will be entirely in CGI has run into some “vicious… Read More »Adam in Guitar World
10,000 Days would appear to be full of secrets (apparently) and last week I asked what your favorite was. It comes as no surprise to me that most of you think there isn’t a secret. And I am a little surprised at how many of you are waiting for the “real” album to be released, or maybe lots of you think it’s funny that there was ever talk of a… Read More »Poll Results: What is your favorite 10,000 Days secret?
This week I ask what is your favorite 10,000 Days secret? Do you dig the various synchronisations? Did you find the clues in the pictures? Anything else I may have missed?
Last week I asked what Album got you into Tool. It looks like most of you got into them around the time of Aenima, just like me, though quite a large amount of you claim to be more OGT than that! Somewhat surprisingly to me, 10,000 Days only brought in a very small amount of new fans. Given the amount of younger Tool fans I’ve seen at recent shows this… Read More »Poll Results: What Album got you into Tool?
There’s a brief interview with Adam on the Baltimore Sun website today. He talks about 10,000 Days but doesn’t reveal anything particularly new: [discussing the 10,000 Days packaging] “That was my idea,” says Jones, who last week was playing a date with the band in Tampa, Fla. “All the ideas start with writing the music, and it flows with the art. … I saw a kid’s book that was similar… Read More »Adam on Baltimore Sun
This weeks Poll was suggested by Brandon. He wants to know, what album got you into Tool? It may not be your favorite Tool recording, but what one made you sit up and say “these guys are good!”.
Last week I asked you tell me your thoughts on 10,000 Days now that it has been out for over 12 months. Personally I find that my perception of records changes over time, and that once past the initial excitment/dissappointment of hearing a new album you can get a feel for what you really think of the album. Personally for me I still think it’s a great album, and while… Read More »Poll Results: 10,000 Days 12 months later…

According to Blair, it seems that there were pre-sales for the recently announced US Dates, and that some members of Toolarmy decided it would be a good idea to release this password. Rather than sharing the love, it seems that this has resulted in scalpers purchasing these pre-sale tickets instead. I’m sure these members were trying to do the right thing, but it looks like it’s backfired on them. Allegedly… Read More »Pre-sales Spoiled? Wings For Marie Lyrics
