I've never listened to Tool, but I assume they suck. Certainly not a quality band like Creed or Three doors down.

New Tool album, coming at some point. Maynard's just waiting on the music to get written. Could be any year now!

I feel like Puscifer is up BigD's alley, at least in concept.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

I actually read an article on the delay. Apparently, they are tied up in some big legal battle over artwork and with an insurance company they hired to cover them, who proceeded to screw them
I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.

Yea, that too. Classic insurance company.

Maynard has his wine and as many bands as he wants to front, so he doesn't give a shit.

The documentary about his vineyard is pretty good. Little-to-no Tool stuff, and mostly the focus on what kind of jackass opens a vineyard in Arizona.

Do you think it's actually contempt or a form of stage fright?

I've seen them 3 times, I don't care where he stands or faces

Jerk Off, is the best song ever. And ode to BigD

it is absolutely contempt. it's not about facing or stage placement as I think some of those things can be artistically justified (not wanting himself to come off as focus/more important than rest of band). it's about trying to dictate to the audience how they ingest his "art." i.e. can only buy the whole album because he feels that you should listen only to the whole album and not "favorite" tracks. which begs the question why do they put tracks on their discs in the first place? but I digress.
Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen.
