Tool Guitarist Makes Sad Announcement: ‘Horrific’


Tool guitarist Adam Jones has announced that his home is in danger of burning down, but that fortunately his family has escaped the Woolsey Fire in the Malibu area.

“Thank you for all the concern love and support. *This is crazy & heartbreaking. God bless all those affected by these horrific wildfires. I hope our home survives. If not – it’s just “stuff” and I have my best friend Korin & our 2boys ???? safe & sound.”

Jones had a fire scare with Tool in the studio earlier this year.
