Maynard will be there, and by there I mean home alone in a dark closet, with a blanket over his head whispering into tin can on a string.

" Audience members are encouraged to ask questions "

Ok how about why you make your fans wait for 15 years for a new album.

"We will have rooms available for attendees to remove their shoes, sit indian-style and sniff their own farts. As is tradition among our intellectually superior audience." -some tool

"It's unbearable but healing, like a rehab clinic, only you're still a tweaker when you leave."

Great. One fcking long drop D fest. Tool will show you how to fool tons of people into thinking you're genius by writing most of your songs in one key. LSD isn't provided but strongly encouraged.
It all makes perfect sense that Adam Jones and Tom Morello were once in a band together. Did they both just play single string guitars tuned to D?
