SEPTEMBER 2018 E.V.
In a couple of weeks I will be heading into Los Angeles to take care of some business regarding a couple of joint book projects with Danny. While there I will drop into the studio (taking Adam up on his recent invite) where the guys have been tracking to see how things are going and listen to some great prog-metal. Of course getting this Toolband update means securing a rental vehicle, dodging falling Prothonotary warblers that have been fried to a crispy char from the Ivanpah Solar Plant at the Nevada state line, filling up the tank in Baker for whatever dollar amount they want to charge for a gallon of gas, stopping at EddieWorld in Yermo to get retro candy for ‘Evil’ Joe (Curly Wurlys and whatnot), being searched for Sub-Saharan Kiwano at the I-15 South agriculture inspection, honking at confused drivers from Victorville in the Bear Valley Road intersection clusterfuck, stuck in mind-numbing traffic in the city (from what I remember after chewing all that Prevagen), having to find a few bucks to pay the valet at the North Hollywood Chevron station, and trying to find a parking space at the studio. But, then I’ll get the goods…maybe. At least, I’ll have some Reed’s Root Beer Rolls for Joe.
In the meantime, for those who haven’t already read it, here’s a tweet from Maynard on September 10, 2018.
“Update- Scratch Vox tracked awhile ago. AJ deep in Guitars now. Final Vox after. Step back. Adjust. Mix. Adjust. Re-Adjust. Master. Adjust. Re-Adjust. Long Way 2 Go But Much Closer.”
