@Swimming; The only thing I never really got around to doing was checking out the "memorabilia museum" they had back by the bar area. Did you check it out? If so, did you get any pictures of it?

They had a couple of framed platinum records, sculptures & masks on display. It was rather small, maybe 12 items or so. Cool to see some of the things from the videos in person. Also, the amount of detail in the opiate priest was amazing.

Re: General Tool Discussion

The St.Paul Clinic was cool, but overall i would say it was not worth the price if you had done previous VIPs. It was almost the exact same experience. It was really cool seeing them play songs up close, and being able to have a few drinks this time as well though.

Re: General Tool Discussion

I will say, I think there is room to improve on this concept if they decide to do it again. It might be neat to see if they can survey ticket holders prior to the show and essentially have them vote on 5-8 song setlist. Then spend a little more time breaking down key sections of each song for that audience. I would have liked to hear them run through Reflection, Triad, or all of D/R/T, Flood, Rosetta Stoned... the latter was actually something I heard a fair amount of interest in from people sitting near me.

I did lean more towards the side wanting to hear them play another couple songs and enjoyed the portions where they were actually detailing their technique with their instrument, rather than "Hey, have you seen Annihilation?!".

Adam did, btw. Four times. He didn't like it. He had to see it four times to be sure about it.

But I mean, to avoid sounding cynical about it... I think any of that was possible within the current format to some degree. I mean, Danny did essentially take the request of someone in the audience to demonstrate the 5 on 7 polyrhythm portion of Rosetta Stoned. He had to load in some presets to his drum brains (I think) prior to doing so. I saw that Adam's guitar tech did have his gold top Les Paul ready to go, assuming that was tuned up for Parabol/a. I think they were mostly prepared to play just about anything and were maybe making choices about what to play based on the vibe of the room. So ultimately I feel like the audience has a lot more control at these things than they think.

However, It still may be a good idea to give the whole experience a little more structure.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Writing that jarred another detail from the night out of my head. There was a point when Adam was talking about polyrhythms and what he thinks of as "counter-rhythms" (which I supposed could also be counterpoint or cross-rhythms), the latter he said would be occurring when he and Justin are playing a the same or similar riff one measure, then the next measure Adam takes a note out of the riff and it creates this "counter rhythm", then the following measure Justin adds a new note for one measure and the whole thing changes again. I feel like I should have asked, but I felt like he was alluding to the opening of Vicarious. He said that stuff like that is heavily influenced by King Crimson's THRAK album (iirc). Which is funny because there's actually more examples of stuff like that on Discipline.

There was a set list on the ground in Adam’s area, but after they played the grudge, the scientists came and picked it up. Parabol / Parabola was #2 on the list. It was also a full 90 min set list...

Did they make time stand still, then go back to the future without anyone noticing? Was there moments of pure space traveling astral projection? That magick in the air?!!!

Adam did mention he was under the weather at the Chicago Clinic and the meet&greet/photo op was just with Danny and Justin.

Maynard has mentioned that every time he is in Chicago, that he gets sick.

Tool has low immunity to sickness in Chicago.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Almost a week out and I want to see this again..had an incredible time..well worth the money...these fellas were straight up humble and very charismatic..the fact that we were sitting directly in front made it such a surreal experience..seeing and hearing this music that has inspired me immensely was such a treat..

Re: General Tool Discussion

TOOL NEWSLETTER

MAY 2018 E.V.

With a few pages left in my Dollar Store legal pad and a heavy dose of blood pressure meds running through my veins, I offer this 18th-anniversay Tool snoozeletter to anyone that might care to read it (perhaps my mother?).

Now that the rare immersive dissections and performances (damn near in your living room!) are a thing of the past (unless everything occurs simultaneously?), I can disclose to the billowing masses (including the band members themselves) that I was among those in attendance at one the clinics where I was cleverly disguised as Tipper Gore so as not to be conspicuous. Knowing that the band members would have spared any expense in getting me to the experience – such as a first class airline ticket, five star hotel accommodations, Michelin gourmet “farm to table” greens and late night entertainment where the bowl of assorted nuts at the bar is changed after any one nut is touched, I instead chose to travel on a bumpy Greyhound with a sack that contained the wrong (but right!) Arby’s order and stay at a hostel with a mirror that didn’t quite do me justice just so I could be there without anyone knowing.

What I wanted to hear was how the guys answered certain questions – such as: How hard is it to tune a nano Silverburst guitar? How many salmon on average does Justin catch while fishing in Alaska from his Boxing Day gift Sikorsky S-76C helicopter? What’s the number of stops on the pipe organ inside the replica Nautilus submarime anchored in Maynard’s swimming pool, and does Danny still feel the mystical vibes from the Knights Templar artifact that was melted down to be included in his Jeff Ocheltree Custom Craft set? Incredibly, no one asked about these things. I would have thought for sure that there would be questions about the advantages of parking bollards at the new loft, or if there were any updates on the new refrigeration system for the vintage Pepsi machine. But, no, instead, fans were asking really odd things like “How’s it going with the recording process?” Is it me – or does that seems kind of silly? Oh, well, you had your chance…

The iced Plobium drinks and endangered animal crackers were a nice touch, and I thought it was prudent of the guys not to hand out gift cans of pumpkin-spiced ravioli until we find out whether or not Chef Boyardee gets accused of sexual harassment with Sarah Lee, Dolly Madison and others?

As for the video props and other items of interest, I wondered if “Problem 8” might be somehow displayed without anyone being aware of it? It was a bit disappointing not to see those crazy ants from planet Serpio that Rance Q. Spartley was involved with, but I can certainly understand the dangers involved with a display like that. Giant Walking Sticks from Indonesia should have been okay, other than the constant watch required by security to keep the f**kers from jaywalking at all hours.

All in all, though, it was great to hear the life changing stories shared by so many Tool enthusiasts to host Justin Roberts (@justinroberts - Facebook.com/TheJustinRoberts) prior to the guys taking the stage (I mean, walking into your living room).

The Tool network on our aqueous blue gem in the cosmos is vast and wide, including fans from India, Brazil, Mexico, Australia and even a Six-Dimensional Non-Newtonian Continuum where Danny signs his name using only a green marker and ideas about pantheistic multiple-ego solipsism are freely discussed.

Thanks again to everyone who seized the moment and made the intimate forums such an unforgettable experience. With all the technical knowledge and philosophical concepts that were shared among the Tool community, I’m looking forward to some great prog-metal in the years to come. Only, watch out for recording studio fires, okay…

Re: General Tool Discussion

I was honestly pretty underwhelmed and disappointed at the clinic. It was way too similar to the VIPS. I feel like it would work better if it was structured, with less fan questions. So many of them become selfish cringe worthy personal stories, rather than actual questions about the music.

This was advertised as a vastly different experience than the VIP's before hand, and it was almost identical aside from having Danny and Justin.

Dont get me wrong, seeing the guys jam was amazing, but having nothing prepared, and having the fans leading the discussion was a pretty big disappointment. I had fun, but it was not worth the money spent.

Re: General Tool Discussion

I can imagine that if you'd done the VIP session previously, you'd have been a little disappointed there wasn't more to it. Having not been to one personally though, I expect I would have enjoyed it a great deal.

Re: General Tool Discussion

There's definitely truth to both of your comments.

Perhaps if proper time could be allotted so that it could be made clear, "Save your stories for the Meet and Mingle, and even then try to keep them brief" - That way they could have had good reason to keep fans focused when asking a question.

I think any complaints could have easily been muted with one action; given that everyone's phones were sufficiently locked up, they could have played the entirety of Descending and used that as a way of generating some serious hype for the new album. Given the demographic of attendees, they surely would have raved about it across multiple social media outlets and generated a good amount of free press from established metal/rock media outlets.

But I get it. They're extremely cautious about leaks and want to control presentation.

It really was great to hear/see them play in such a personal setting with no flashy light show (no offense, Junior). It really let the music stand on it's own. I'm still in awe of how good they are at their craft.

Re: General Tool Discussion

was worth every bit of the ticket price and travel expenses for me. It was just dumb luck that I was able to afford it so it was a once-in-a-lifetime situation, and I was not disappointed. I also didn’t go in thinking we would hear anything new. I guess if I had been to a VIP sesh and was expecting something vastly different, maybe I would be disappointed- maybe. I read about the each of the pre-show VIPs, and I felt like the clinic was different than what I perceived the VIPs to be. Sure the “meet and mingle” was more of a “line and photo booth”, and the relic museum was tucked off in the corner, but it was still an experience I couldn’t put a price tag on. If I had the resources I would follow them like people did with the Greatful Dead, and probably never get tired of it- but I was able to afford this one, so I enjoyed every second of it. Room for improvement? I think screening the questions is a great idea. Just throw some blank space on the bottom of the permission slip we all had to fill out, pick some that don’t suck, and have Justin ask the questions or something. Even still, 100% worth it to me. Can’t wait to see what the merch package is all about... has anyone gotten theirs yet?

Re: General Tool Discussion

Mine still says it hasn't shipped yet.

I honestly forgot about it. Maybe I'll follow up on it if it hasn't shipped by Monday/Tuesday of next week.

Re: General Tool Discussion

VIP..clinic it doesn’t matter..the guys took time to try this.. Adam even said hated the fact that bands have done these and left fans with a horrible empty and unfulfilling experiences..nothing is ever gonna be perfect..especially not the first couple times it’s attempted..ticket prices I felt were worth the weeding out of some mindless numbskull yelling out stupid shit like “freebird” which would have been extremely disrespectful..furthermore to say ask anything and we will answer is brave for anyone..the opportunity presented itself and it was very much possible to ask whatever ur heart desired..if u didn’t hear ur question and/or answer that’s on you not them..they are and have been doing this for YEARS!!! They kno what they’re comfortable with and not comfortable with.. so much more power to them for such an incredible attempt and SUCCESSFUL endeavor..I couldn’t be anymore grateful for it

Re: General Tool Discussion

Just checked on the receipt link. Still says merch hasn’t shipped. To be fair, Adam said it would shop at the end of the month, but he didn’t say WHICH month...

On June 5th, I got this reply from clinic@toolband.com

Thank you for your patience. Merch packages will start going out by the middle to end of next week. You will receive an email with tracking info as soon as your package(s) go out.

On June 6th, I got this one:
An email with a link to the photo(s) will be sent out by the end of this week.

(Note: as yins know, only the 1st 2 clinics got to take any pics. I attended the Pittsburgh clinic and noticed Justin Roberts taking a bunch of “candid” shots during the Q&A and performances, so I asked if we would only be getting the group photo or if we would also get some of the candid shots. I’m hoping it’s the latter as the response does say “photo(s)” …

SO.. it's officially "the end of the week" and I didn't get an email with a link to the pics! I'm a bit surprised, why give a timeframe of 3-4 days if it wasn't actually in the works? Have to say tho, I'm part pissed and part heartbroken... and I sent them a new email expressing my displeasure. Not that it matters...
