Nine Inch Nails photographer Travis Keller revealed that he discovered that Maynard James Keenan is not in the Tool live mix. Nine Inch Nails and Tool played some legendary shows together in 2007. Nine Inch Nails released their latest album Bad Witch last year, while the new Tool album release date is August 30th. A report recently broke on the new Tool single and when it may be released.
“Tool’s devil wheel thingy, snapped backstage in Italy, 2007. I was out with Nine Inch Nails and they did a string of co-headlining shows in Europe with Tool. Was pretty epic.
Got to watch Tool from the stage a bunch of nights, where I realized Maynard is not in the bands live mix. But either way I gotta say, they slay live. Then again I’m a sucker for props.”
A fan asked, “What do you mean not in the mix?”
Keller responded, “He’s only coming out of the pa, he is not in the mix in their monitors and he using in ears so on stage you can’t hear him.”
Tool drummer Danny Carey recently announced the death of his dog Levi, also known as Satchmo and Fatman.
“It is with a heavy heart I must announce the passing of my best friend and partner in crime Levi (Satchmo, Fatman) Carey. He lived a long full life and brought joy to everyone he met. RIP Buddy Boy.”
