Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. Founded in 1990, the group is led by vocalist Maynard James Keenan and includes drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, and bassist Justin Chancellor. Keenan and Jones started out jamming together, and eventually decided to put together a band. Carey lived a floor above Keenan, and initially played in early sessions because he“felt kinda sorry for them” since other musicians were invited but not showing up.
The band is secretive and mischievous, always playing with the press – they lied about the origins of the name“Tool” as a nod to the pseudo philosophy“lachrymology.” Keenan later explained Tool this way:“Tool is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a big dick. It’s a wrench. We are … your tool; use us as a catalyst in your process of finding out whatever it is you need to.” Tool has released four studio albums, with another scheduled to drop in August 2019. They have won three Grammy awards.
