Back when I first started this site, one of the first true scores for me, personally, was when Adam Jones of Tool agreed to speak with me. Not only that, but Adam posted a link to Gun Shy on Tool’s fucking site.
I happen to think Adam’s the man, and basically, his guitar skills are fucking dope as all get-up.
But his people skills may leave something to be desired. During my chat with him, he came across as very personable.
But here’s a Facebook post from him, that begs a serious question.
“To those of you who demand a new album from Tool: would you rather get something mediocre now, or something impressive later?,” Adam asks.
That’s a good question. Would you rather the band rush something, just so you could have new Tool, or would you rather try to exert some patience and allow those dudes the time they need for their process?
I’m going with the second option.
Here’s where Jones gets snippy: “Truth is, we don’t write for you, we write for us — but we don’t share for us, we share for you.”
Adam’s the man. Tool are working on a new album. Chill the fuck out and stop bugging the guys about it.
