Generic “bands that have supported Tool” update

I’ve noticed a few interesting happenings in regards to bands that have supported Tool over the years, and today I shall compile them into one handy post for you all to enjoy.

Poll Results: Favorite Mike Patton Project?

Last weeks poll asked what was your favorite Mike Patton project? Personally I’m a Tomahawk fan, but it came as no surprise to me to see that Faith No More won the poll.  Faith No More were pretty much a defining band for me as a teenager.  Without them, and particularly Angel Dust I probably would never got into Heavy Music at all, and would be stuck in the purgatory… Read More »Poll Results: Favorite Mike Patton Project?
