Yeah and Travis is the guy to ask. He probably even knows their shoe sizes and if they wear boxers or briefs.

(ATTN: that was NOT a question as to what kinda undergarments they wear, DO NOT answer that!)

The big break was, I suppose, the release of "Sober" as a single.

No one really. They were playing gigs with no management and were swamped by record companies. They toured with Rage Against The Machine early on because the guitarist Adam Jones is friends with Rage guitarist Tom Morello (they were in a band together in high school). This surely helped them get exposure as well. Don't forget though, they weren't trying to make it big or anything, they were just messing around. When record companies first started contacting them, they refused, thinking it was silly that they were even asked.

While Tool is extremely private about their personal lives, I know that Adam Jones recently married, and I know that Justin Chancellor is married as well. I believe that Maynard has a fiancé, but I am not sure about Danny Carey.
Maynard is the only member with a child to my knowledge. One son named Devo (don't ask, I have no idea). I am not sure on his age, but I would say 8 or so by now at the very least.

Don't know shoe sizes, though Danny Carey's is probably pretty big considering the fact that he is 6'5". As for boxers and briefs, Maynard has been knows to wear either on stage (and nothing else).

I do like Tool's music, i think its pretty deep and ispirational.

However... i dont love their lyrics either. This is a the lyrics from tools lead singer w/ perfect circle.


"you're such an inspiration for ways that i will never ever choose to be
oh so many ways for me to show you how your savior has abandoned you
f*** your god your lord your christ, he did this took all you had and left you this way
still you pray never stray never taste of the fruit never thought to question why
it's not like you killed someone it's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed he did it all for you
oh so many ways for me to show you how your dogma has abandoned you
pray to your christ to your god never taste of the fruit never stray never break never choke on a lie
even though he's the one who did this to you never thought to question why
it's not like you killed someone it's not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
talk to jesus christ as if he knows the reasons why
he did it all for you he did it all for you"





Sorry to post all that stuff...... but just showing my case.

Oh, sorry, I wasn't forgot that you have never been angry at God or questioned him. My bad.

Also, why did you quote it? Did you really think I wouldn't know the words?

Dude, he was just stating his opinion on those lyrics. He didn't lay down his interpretation, just an opinion. Your's is that Tool is the greatest band ever, his (and mine) on the other hand is that they're good, but not 'the greatest'.

I imagine he was quoting it so that others could see the lyrics. I know if he had said "I disagree with the lyrics in the song called ____" I wouldn't have known what he was talking about.

Sorry to sound like I'm "coming to his rescue" or something, but I just felt that should be addressed. Peace.

And I responded to it. So what?

They aren't the greatest because you and he don't agree with some of the lyrics? I don't see how that has anything to do with it.

Perhaps. (That was "Judith" btw...) That is the only one he quoted, you know why? Because the rest of the album has almost nothing that could possibly be construed as offensive at all, but it about healing. Hmmm... he must have just "accidentally" let that part out.

Look, I'm not trying to get into some debate about who's the greatest band, yada yada. My opinion of their greatness or lack there of isn't just about lyrics, whether it's Tool or Perfect Circle or anyone else who's ever written a song (if you look at my earlier post in the thread, I said that Maynard was a talented writer).

What I am saying is that for you they're the greatest band. For me, they aren't. Saying any band is the greatest ever is completely subjective. An assumption like that is 100% opinionated and can't be justified with facts.
