    Tired Of Waiting...

    Don't get me wrong, I love Tool and it's the best band I've ever seen live... but is anyone else tired of waiting for a new album? I understand it usually takes them a while to put stuff out but this wait since 10,000 Days is ridiculous compared to the times between their other...

    All of My Life

    Or at least my adult life.  (I listened to Weird AL as a kid)  First time I heard tool back in middle school I was instantly hooked.  I always have Tool on my MP3 player's playlist.  Amazing music.

    Finally Have Salival

    My wonderful hubby bought me the Salival cd-booklet-dvd box set. It came in the mail today. I haven't watched it because I've got to go to work in a few minutes, but I'll be into it tonight. I can't wait. Been wanting this for YEARS and now, it's all mine.

    At a Loss For Words

    I love Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer.  Tool is my go to music, and has been since I was in high school, for when I'm feeling good, feeling bad or in between, there is just something about the music, lyrics, Maynard's voice that make me feel alive and/or elsewhere...

    Genius

    The music is tight, unique, heavy yet melodic. The vocals are haunting. The lyrics are deep and introspective. All in all, this band is genius. They are definitely in my top 5. I'm listening to them right now, actually. lol

    "Following Our Will and Wind We May Just Go Where No One's Been... "

    A wonderful friend introduced me to Tool about 3 years ago.  I absolutely love their lyrics and their music.  I finally got to experience them live last December.  WOW!  Even better than I imagined!  My goal is to see them every year that I can!

    The Next Logical Step In The Progression Of Music

    I believe Tool is the next logical step in the progression of music. Their music is the only music I can listen to anymore, because nothing else compares. Once you go Tool, you can never go back. They are gods among men and their music is a gift to this world.

    It's Enlightening

    James Keenan Maynard is nothing short of genius. Every song put out by Tool is just as amazing and insightful as the last. Music has not had meaning like this since the days of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and very few will ever be anything close to what these musicians express. I...

    I met Maynard the other day... UPDATE!

    For those who have read my story, I felt that you deserved to know the full, true story, as shameful as it may be. I entered and Maynard was sitting in a chair. Both hands were held out before him in fists, with palms toward the floor. "Let's chant." I blinked...

    No one even knows who tool is anymore.

    . I know it takes a lot of appreciation for music to like their music but really no one even knows who they or mjk are. It's sad.

    Life-changing Experiences

    I was first introduced to Tool in high school. I was dating a guy who was (and still is) completely, insanely, obsessively devoted to Tool and everything associated with them. At the time, I didn't understand his attraction. Sure, they sounded pretty neat; I enjoyed the deep and...

    This band is litteraly the definition of

    when music becomes more Than just music. This is heavy, serious an uncanny to say the least, but so powerful it holds you like a straightjacket. Mjk's voice never fails to give me goosebumps and dannys drums are of this world. I really hope i Will see them live someday.
