Tool’s Danny Carey is Suffering from a “Very Serious Staph Infection”
It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the day when we can report some good news for Tool fans.
Unfortunately, today is not that day.
~ Great crowd at #AfterShock festival. Thank you Sacramento‼️ I truly have to respect Mr #DannyCarey who played the entire show with a very serious Staph Infection. At first on Friday morning he was misdiagnosed with a poisonous spider bite on his upper leg. Then later Friday night the quarter sized wound was cut opened & drained. By Saturday DC was still aching from head to toe & from what I heard the Local Doctor recommended we skip the show. But Dan with headaches & painful joints played anyway… ???????????????? #Tool #Hero #BestDrummerInTheWorld #stubborn #getWellSoon #theshowmustgoon *vid shot by @justinroberts
Carey is a total trooper for not cancelling the performance, and we hope he gets better as fast as humanly possible.
On a more selfish note, we hope that this doesn’t further delay the release of Tool’s next album, which is tentatively scheduled for release in 2049.
We will, of course, keep you updated on Carey’s health.
