It was recently reported that Tool drummer Danny Carey hurled a homophobic slur during an alleged assault at Kansas City Airport. One day prior, Carey had performed the classic Jimi Hendrix song “Fire” at the University of Kansas vs University of Missouri men’s basketball game in Lawrence, Kansas. Speculation mounts that Carey could be either hit will a fine north of $13,900 – a staggering amount. Law enforcement in the area claim that Carey was in an altercation with an employee that was working security that the airport.
Tool recently apologized to fans for this shocking reason. However, a new picture shows that Carey is actually in good spirits despite all of his recent legal troubles. A photo that was originally posted on Facebook and is now making rounds on the Tool SubReddit shows the Tool drummer relaxing by the beach with a drink in hand. You can view it below.
Over on the aforementioned SubReddit fans of the group seem to have absolutely zero problems with the picture as one user named niconic66 would have their say by posting the following comment on the platform: “Such an unpretentious dude. I met him in Sydney on the Lateralus tour, he and Adam were the nicest guys. Justin was tripping balls and Maynard AWOL as usual.”
While HelloweenCapital would say: Love Danny to death but in this pic from the collar down, I’m reminded of “Bob with b**** tits” lol, obviously the dude is in amazing shape. Some of you guys are nothing else. Lol
In other news regarding Tool, in an interview with Revolver’s David Cross last month, frontman Maynard James Keenan discussed the difference between performing with Tool live vs his other band, Puscifer. Credit to Metalcastle for the below.
“Tool shows… You’ve got four top-notch operators on point for the most part. We’re all getting older and things are creaking a little bit more. But you have this insane production and those guys are so loud already. Just their stage volumes are big.
He would also say: “And so, for me, [Puscifer] is a nice break, because the subtleties that we work through with Puscifer, it ends up being far more Kraftwerk control over levels. Just easier space to navigate and for the cabaret nature of some of the things we do.”
