Tool bassist Justin Chancellor joined System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian at a party a few days ago. Shavo wrote on social media, “Had so much fun last night at Justin and Shelee Chancellor’s Christmas party with @mrssoniao. You guys rule!! #christmasparty #holidays #chancellormanor #tool x #systemofadown #goodtimes.” When a fan suggested they form a band in a comment, Shavo winked, hinting that something is in the works! System of a Down members played with a famous replacement singer recently.
A fan named Scottphris2 recently posted an interesting Maynard James Keenan ‘Fear Inoculum’ Tool tour theory on Reddit.
“Tour Spoilers – ‘Vicariously I live while the whole world dies, much better you than I.’ Maynard let’s the audience sing this part, then after they’re finished he sings “much better you than I” It’s almost like he’s commenting on the audience singing it instead of him. Also since this part of the song is sang in the first person and it’s referencing ‘you’ I think it makes sense to let the audience sing ‘Vicariously I live while the whole world dies’ and then reply back ‘Much better you than I.’
He really could sing this part if he wants, so he’s letting the audience take over for a reason. Unless he just doesn’t like the part and regrets writing it.”
Madtiiib responded, “I made a very similar post but focused on Maynard making a stadium full of people proclaim their complacency to tragedy.”
TheGreasyCigarette chimed in, “I always thought it was because he has trouble hitting the notes, I heard they had to bring the song down a few keys.” System of a Down revealed a sad Tool performance photo last week.
