In other news regarding Tool, who recently apologized to fans for this shocking reason, the aforementioned frontman discussed his problems with social media in an interview with AZ Central. Credit to the outlet for the following.

“I don’t want to be the old dude blaming the new stuff, but that really is part of the issue. Social media technology. And the isolation of being able to voice every uninformed opinion that you’ve ever had or come across. I don’t know if there’s any way out until somehow it all gets unplugged for a reset.

He continued: “It’s very comfortable from your living room to run your mouth,” he says. “But when you actually have to see the situations in real-time or have to talk to the person across from you, we tend to be a bit more civil. You might be the big tough guy, but eventually, there’s a bigger tougher guy who doesn’t agree with you. So at some point, you’re sort of going, ‘OK, maybe we should be cool to each other instead of running our mouths.'”
