Tool Music Clinics: A series of intimate discussions take fans behind-the-scenes into the inner workings of one of rock music’s most mysterious bands.
We know that the link between Mike Patton and Tool is mainly based on touring and performing with each other. However, we know there’s large cross-over of fans of Patton and Tool, so we thought we’d take a break from our regular programming and quickly bring this to you.
With their debut Undertow having just reached its 25th anniversary, Tool has just announced a series of “Music Clinics” in May 2018 where drummer Danny Carey, bass player Justin Chancellor and guitar player Adam Jones will take fans through a number of songs as well as take questions.
Here’s what the press release had to say:
The discussions include drummer Danny Carey, bass player Justin Chancellor and guitar player Adam Jones walking attendees through a handful of the band’s songs, from the process of writing them to playing them live. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions via an open discussion, as well as mingle with the band following the session.
Ticket holders will receive commemorative merchandise, exclusive to the series of events and limited to the number of people in attendance. An accompanying, traveling exhibit will be on display at each event, featuring unique items from Tool’s history.
