Video: Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Plays Jenga Behind Danny Carey’s Drum Kit Mid-Show


It’s widely known that though they are third-eye-opening astral travelers, Tool are also a bunch of sillybill ding dongs. They may take their craft seriously, but they always try to have fun with what they do, especially frontman Maynard James Keenan. Case in point, Maynard recently took a moment mid-show to play a little Jenga behind drummer Danny Carey’s kit.

The video comes from Keenan’s Instagram, and shows the mohawked singer considering his next pull from the tower. Unfortunately, Carey does what drummers do — incessantly drum while people are trying to do something that requires focus — and, spoiler alert, he knocks over Maynard’s tower. What a shmuck.

Maynard made it clear:

“Danny, you son of a bitch! Tryn ta Jenga back here, ffs.”

A real band of brothers, these guys. Watch the video below, and make sure to catch Tool on one of their many upcoming tour dates, where you can also buy the $750 box set version of their new album Fear Inoculum:
