We would like to wish a very happy 48th birthday today (April 17) to Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer singer Maynard James Keenan. Having spent almost 30 years of his life dedicated to music, among many other pursuits such as winemaking, comedy and martial arts, Keenan is the ultimate Renaissance man.
Gather all your friends and start making plans for a road trip to Saint Paul, Minnesota. Why, you ask? Because of the 2012 River's Edge Music Festival, stunna!
Legendary alt-metal band Tool recently wrapped up a huge arena tour, giving their incredibly rabid fans unforgettable nights of stunning visuals and complex music. Even though the tour is finished, that doesn't mean you have to stop listening to their music! In fact, we want to know which Tool album is your favorite.
Tool are not a band. Tool is an entity - one multifunctional being seamlessly controlling a brilliant mass of sound. Made up of vocalist Maynard James Keenan, guitarist Adam Jones, bassist Justin Chancellor, drummer Danny Carey, masterful lights, fog and breathtaking animations, Tool delivered a powerful experience last night to its legions of fans in New Jersey.
The hard rock scene's most beloved enigmatic rockers -that'd be Tool-- are gearing up to hit the road next month on a North American trek. The band has already added some new dates to their itinerary, much of which sold out at a rapid clip. Since Tool going on tour is not exactly a common occurrence, fan anticipation is at an all time high.
Less than a week after stumping fans and journalists with a cryptic Web site statement that was erroneously deciphered to mean Tool were back in the studio working on a new album, news has surfaced that the psychedelic, prog-metal masters will play their first U.S. shows in almost 18 months.
