Tool Announce Series of Intimate Music Clinics
Although I’d rather be reporting on a goddamn album release date, I have to admit, this sounds like it could potentially be really cool for fans who get to attend. From a press release:
“Tool, one of rock music’s most mysterious and speculated about bands, give fans a rare glimpse behind-the-scenes via a series of intimate music clinics.
“The discussions include drummer Danny Carey, bass player Justin Chancellor and guitar player Adam Jones walking attendees through a handful of the band’s songs, from the process of writing them to playing them live. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions via an open discussion, as well as mingle with the band following the session.
“Ticket holders will receive commemorative merchandise, exclusive to the series of events and limited to the number of people in attendance. An accompanying, traveling exhibit will be on display at each event, featuring unique items from Tool’s history.”
Maynard will be on tour with A Perfect Circle around this time, so this is probably as good a way for the other members of Tool to spend their time as any. Hopefully attendees will learn some cool shit.
