From Tyla to Tool

Also this week:

Adam Jones of print stars Tool told us, “We did a bit of writing before Christmas. It’s just been hard. We’ve had some curveballs thrown at us. On the last tour Danny Carey’s hip was going. It was so bad, he was limping and the doctor said it was bone on bone, like, there was nothing there. And he was in a lot of pain. He’s basically Eddie Van Halen, on drums. I admire how much he rips his guts out to play, especially with that pain. And so over that Christmas break, he got a hip replacement. We’re all biting her nails. He made a 100% recovery, and he’s back to being the monster that he is.”

In “Not Another DJ,” zensei ゼンセー said, “I don’t think there was another time when people were so good at production. Almost every week I find a new artist I’m obsessed with. Live performances are getting better as well, I’m in aw of all the talent out there. It keeps me motivated and want to learn more!”
