About a month ago Tool guitarist Adam Jones met up with King Crimson guitarist/founder Robert Fripp to discuss possibly rehashing the collaborative album they had started working on a few years back. Fripp recently posted about this on his online journal and had this to say…
“A fabbo lunch with Adam covering a wide range of common interests & experiencing, among which: the possibilities of continuing our album, begun in Los Angeles some 5-6 years ago; and go out speaking together.”
Of course a project like this asks questions concerning what is going on with Tool considering there has been no info regarding a follow up to their last album “10,000 Days” as well as Maynard James Keenan setting out on his first full tour with Puscifer.
When Maynard was asked recently about all this he had this to say,”I can’t sit still, so when those guys hesitate, it takes us so long to do stuff, and it’s like a snake eating its own tail situation, ’cause then I get distracted and I go off and do a thing, and then I get blamed for not being around to do the (Tool) thing,” he said. “But nothing was getting done when I was standing there, so I got bored and left. It’s just an endless cycle.”
