Like your tinsel-festooned tree, this holiday edition of the TOOL NEWSLETTER is a work in progress, so check back from time to time or you just might miss something of minor importance.
As most of you already know, the TOOL Family lost one of their cherished members this month with the passing of guitar tech CHRIS "FRANK" LEAHEY. Frank will be sadly missed by all who knew him... but life goes on... and on a more positive note, the Tool Family (in particular, the Carey family) might be adding a future band tech for some tour down the road... We'll have to wait and see.
UPDATE: CONFIRMATION... It's a drum-tech. Well, closer maybe, as the child is a male. Not to say that a female can't be a drum-tech...
In other news, those of you who have purchased the limited edition FRAMED TOOL WALL ART PIECE should be receiving your order soon, including some lucky person in Norway (One of Santa's old stomping grounds), who I RANDOMLY CHOSE to get Matte copy # 23 - shown below with a little EXTRA TOUCH drawn on the spot by ADAM as he signed the piece. In watching Adam put his autograph on others, a FEW of you might notice similar additional flourishes when you receive your order.
I will have to pause at this point to get ready for the holiday lunch. However, before I leave, I thought I should remind you that all decorated evergreens (including wreaths) should be removed by JANUARY 5, 2015 e.v. (Once again, you have been warned!)
UPDATE: Holiday lunch at Musso an Franks in Hollywood. Justin was the only band member in attendance this time, so a pretty good foundation...
UPDATE: DANNY to perform the PRIMUS UBER DRUM SPECTACULAR at the FOX THEATER in OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA on NEW YEARS EVE.
