Tool Family Hit By Cancer News After Tour

Tool start a fundraiser for Steve Walsh

The page noted: “Most of you know Steve from the touring world. He’s the first man to lend an extra hand, with a smile on his face! His calm demeanor and professional attitude makes him loved by all of the wonderful bands he worked with over the years. However, we are not his only family.”
He has his wife Chelsea, children Miles and Charlie, and loving sister Amanda and “he is in good hands.” Steve has a battle ahead of him and as noted, he is facing 6-12 months of aggressive, chemo, radiation, and corrective surgery.
The money accumulated from the donation can help pay for meals, travel expenses while he receives treatment at Sloan Kettering in New York, and lighten the load for the entire Walsh Family.
We sent best wishes to Steve Walsh and his family for a speedy recovery of Steve.


Tool continue with their live concerts. They recently performed live in concert at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA. One of the fans had disclosed how a person in attendance was escorted out of the concert. The fan revealed that a person next to him was escorted out of the concert and he claimed it was only two minutes into the first song of the concert. He further revealed that the person was noted to be recording video.

Recently, Maynard James Keenan-fronted band performed at CHI Health Center in Omaha, NE on March 12. It was also noted in another incident how a fan from the Omaha concert spoke about the usage of drugs at the show.

The fan from the Omaha concert also spoke about the usage of drugs at the show. He wrote: “Not a single person offered me drugs but they were everywhere. Overall fantastic experience. 10/10 would do again.”

Previously, in another instance when Tool performed at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky, one fan revealed taking two tablets of LSD drug during the show. For those who are not aware of what LSD is, it is Lysergic acid diethylamide which is used as a psychedelic drug that intensifies thoughts, emotions, and sensory perception.
