other than that it was basically completely the same as the other clinics. yay tool. i didnt get picked to ask a question, but most of the other questions were pretty interesting. nothing new about the album. same setlist as previous clinics. seeing them play eulogy blew my fucking mind.

the final question of the evening was “what do you want Tool’s legacy to be?” to which Justin replied, ‘to inspire others to always be creative’ it was sick. it was a cool crowd too. very thankful to have been able to experience that.”
