TOOL

TOOL HAS BEEN ON THE VERY TOP OF MY FAVORITES LIST FOR YEARS NOW AND I DON’T SEE THEM LEAVING THAT SPOT EVER. AS A WRITER, THE THING THAT HOOKED ME FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WERE THE LYRICS. THE MEMBERS OF TOOL HAVE ALWAYS ENCOURAGED PEOPLE TO MAKE THEIR OWN INTERPRETATIONS OF THE SONGS, AND IT HONESTLY IS THE BEST WAY TO DO IT. BUT THE MUSIC ITSELF IS IMPERATIVE AS WELL FOR A FULL INTERPRETATION – THE ONE COMPLIMENTS THE OTHER. I COULD SPEND ENDLESS HOURS GOING INTO DETAIL OVER MY OWN INTERPRETATIONS OF THE LYRICS AND THE MUSIC…BUT I WON’T…UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, WHICHEVER WAY YOU LOOK AT IT FROM, TOOL IS SIMPLY THE BEST! I’VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF SEEING THEM LIVE ABOUT FOUR TIMES AND IT ALWAYS GETS BETTER!

ENJOY A COUPLE OF FULL CONCERTS I FOUND ON YOUTUBE.

THE FIRST IS AT EVERETT EVENT CENTER, 2007. THE SECOND IS AN OLDER ONE, ON 2001 IN PORTLAND. I CHOSE THE SECOND ONE TOO BECAUSE IT OPENS WITH THE GRUDGE, MY FAVORITE SONG.
