    I'm 43 years old and love all sorts of music. I just "discovered" Tool, though. Any other Tool lovers out there?

    Great musicians, though their last release was one of the most disappointing albums in recent memory for me.

    Tool is one of my all-time favorite bands. So many great riffs, lyrics, and the musicianship is top notch.

    Check out A Perfect Circle as well. Maynard's other project.

    the drummer's father Bob was the head of junior golf here when I was in that program growing up.

    I went to play a tournament in dallas one year just as tool was coming to town and Jeff's dad got a bunch of my friends and I tickets to the show. Of course I missed it though, still pissed. :(

    Great band, probably the heaviest stuff I listen to though but I bet you'll hear that from a lot of people. Just popped Laterlus out of the disc changer in my car after beign there in consistent rotation for months.

    their albums are crazy compressed though but I like it in this particular instance.

    I'm a long-time Tool fan, although I tend to like their earlier stuff a little more than the recent releases.

    Very atmospheric yet heavy band-tons of layered sounds and immaculate production. (a gothic metallic version of Pink Floyd in my opinion). As others have said, APC is also incredible.

    I love lateralus...it's by far my favorite.

    Anyone have a good recording of them doing 'no quarter'? I lost mine somehow.

    Tool in '94 at Blind Melons in Buffalo was one of the best club shows I've ever seen. Intense, moody, rocking and a little scary. I remember Maynard put a girl in a small cage up on the stage and left her there...

    hellz yeah! I discovered them in the late 90's...between aenima and Lateralus (probably spelled em both wrong, sorry ) and I love em...didnt really get in to the new one though...

    Adam Jones KILLS on guitar, and his tone is awesome...
