10 Things Tool
Do you find the music of Tool lighthearted and comfy? Do you think Maynard and company are delightful and fuzzy fellows in rock? Well, Gibson.com‘s Anne Erickson has taken it on herself to have a fun look at the band in a Top 10 list of things you may (probably do) or may-not have known about the shiny happy Tool. Oh, no new album date…still.
Come on, its fun stuff…
Tool guitarist Adam Jones has a talent for special effects, set design and make-up. He worked on the make-up and set designs for “Jurassic Park,” “Dances with Wolves,” “Terminator: 2” and many more feature films.
Tool drummer Danny Carey says band members follow their guts when creating new music. “You have to trust your instincts,” he told Modern Drummer (via ToolShed.Down.net). “At a certain point along the way, when the structures are put together, the songs take on a life of their own. You have to be as true to that as possible. Let it breathe and become its own entity so it’ll have a beginning, and end and some evolution without getting too messy.”
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Tool guitarist Adam Jones played in a band together in high school called Electric Sheep.
