If there’s one thing that can be said about Tool records, it’s that they’re always worth the wait… any idea on when it will be ready?

“Ah man, I really appreciate that. It’s refreshing to be interviewed by someone that loves music and actually knows about our band. Some of the journalists we’ve dealt with… it’s been insulting to be interviewed by people that don’t bother following music or even seem to like it at all – it’s just a gig for them to get a paycheck. This lawsuit has really gotten in the way, all we want to do is get it behind us so we can focus on what we do best. I don’t want to just get it out and worry about the next record, then look back and go, ‘Why did I do that? It’s a piece of crap.’ I want to sleep well at night, it’s my legacy you know? Some day, I’m gonna croak and I wanna look back on what I did and go, ‘I worked really hard, took the time and had integrity.’ I know our fans are frustrated and obviously want to hear new music. You gotta look at that in a good way and think, ‘Wow – they really like us and they want more!’ To be honest, you can’t beat that feeling at all.”

In other words.....NOT FOR A VERY LONG TIME!!!!!!!!

Please take a moment to consider that we have a Grudge thread for a reason.

Something about that interview didn't sit well with me. It was just too fucking cheesy.

He does sound very emotional about this whole court process (as one would). But it is out of their hands now and it's best just to let their blood sucking lawyers deal with it. It will end eventually.

In the meantime.......

So the art was used in the 90's, the policy was taken out with AIM for 2002-2003 coverage, and the claim was made in 2005. Kinda weird.
What's the deal with taking out an insurance policy to insure you for damages that you know are on their way? Doesn't seem like something the insurers would be queueing out the door to get your pen on their paper for... unless there's some disclosure issues.

Granted the whole thing's a drainer; I get that. Nothing owed to me, etc. Consider though comparative productivity of MJK the past ~7yrs who's been under the same 4-way band pump - pretty remarkable.

^ If this truly has been dragged out over the mentioned time frame, then it would make sense why MJK would pursue other projects so intensely. He has some some decent financial advisors in his ear, and whatever happens with TOOL, new album or not, he will be truly covered. Slick move man.

Financially, I do not feel sorry for any of them as they will collect royalties until their days are done. I do not imagine DC banking too much off of Volto. I am not sure what the fuck the other two get up to outside of TOOL. And for the 1/5 cut to Adams "best friend" , I doubt it will ever happen.

In the end with all the hoopla aside, we wait...... Patiently

He's an old friend. Just man up and say yeah ok we did kinda fuck you with regards to using your art. You should have been compensated better. To make up for it how about we drop all this legal shit, we record an album, and you get your fair shares profit from it. He could do the artwork for the new album and blam! Everyone's happy. Tool releases an album, no one is getting sued. Cam gets a massive check, and Alex grey doesn't do the artwork. Win win win.

Too much bad blood, it will never happen. But I would love to see what Cam and Adam working together would come up with. We missed out on a lot of great work due to this bullshit.

The shit with Cam has already been settled.
It's the insurance companies that are still in litigation with Tool.

The stuff with Cam was settled out of court. Legally they may be on good terms with Cam, I'm not so sure about personally though. I doubt they will ever work together again.

I have it on good authority that there actually is no lawsuit and this is all a ruse. They're actually suing themselves. You can trust me, I know someone who's a lawyer.

I've been thinking about all of this since the lawsuit news came out... I don't really consider this lawsuit BS to be a viable excuse to lose creative energy. Obviously Maynard's creative drive hasn't withered. Danny continues to play music and plug away. It seems like an excuses and assholes scenario... everyone can come up with one... typical, stinky, made up reason why Adam has writer's block. Danny reported, what, 4 years ago that Justin has been particularly prolific on this album and has been churning out wonderful riffs left and right. All signs point to Adam. Adam hasn't made any new videos... he has no other musical projects... he has, however, been able to play the star-spangled banner at the wrestling show, got divorced/married, and made a baby. So... is it really the lawsuit, Adam...or is it maybe that you aren't really focused on Tool like you used to be? It seems for a guy that would obsess over every frame of the music videos he made and obsess over every second of every song that maybe he has taken his eye off the ball. This seems like a much more viable excuse. He is worried about his legacy to the extent he'd rather waste his bandmates' musical prime than threaten his legacy with what he considers to be inadequate guitar. It sucks... he is everything to Tool! I don't buy the lawsuit bullshit. It's him taking his eye off the ball.

Yep. Anyone have any armchair comments about how she was delivered, or any subsequent lawsuits that may arise from said birthing? We're all dying to know.

It doesn't really make sense if you think about it though. Maynard is 50 years old, there's no way his sperm is strong enough to survive the hazards of a vagina. That can't actually be his kid. His wife is probably just using him for his money. Popping out some bastard child so that she'll get more if she divorces him. That's the way these things work. Same thing happened to my uncle.
