|- old news: september 1997 -|
[9/24/97] - Despite the Tool-vacation in progress nowadays, Maynard made a guest appearance at Sunday night's Rage Against the Machine show in Phoenix, singing his famed "time has come to paaaaaay" line in "Know Your Enemy." I still think I live on the wrong side of the country.
[9/20/97] - Two months ago, the new Tabs section was completed, but I
forgot to make automated tab posting available from the Tablatures
submenu. Silly me. So now, at last, you can add tabs directly to
t.d.n. In court news, all sides involved in this wonderful battle
are making it sound like it will stretch on for a while.
[9/19/97] - I forgot to post this bit of info recently passed on to me:
Paul D'Amour (Tool's original bassist) is getting married tomorrow in
Seattle to Gilden Tunador. Best of luck and congratulations to both of
them! Another article on the lawsuit is now online, this one has some
more details on the situation:
[9/16/97] - This site reported recently that Tool was
splitting from Volcano Entertainment, since the label had (somehow)
managed to not renew their contract while the band was still under an
option period. Seems that the label wasn't ready to say goodbye to their
only profit-turners, and now the band has filed suit against the label.
The label has apparently filed a countersuit against Tool for trying to
break their contract. What a mess. This news has been hitting headlines
around the industry, notably at MTV and Yahoo! I'm referring you there
for further info; although I know it will all get posted here eventually,
I'm not a full-time member of the press:
[9/14/97] - Honestly, nothing noteworthy has happened of late. According to the newest issue of Rolling Stone, the "Ænema" video is #9 on M2. Three weeks of Opinions have finally been cleaned up, many were axed, some "approved", so if you have been scared of wading through them, go now while it is clean. And I'm still way behind, thanks to preproduction for my film. (Don't mail me asking about it, I'll post info about it somewhere else soon. Thanks.)
[9/8/97] - Some more RealAudio files have been posted, including part of that Adam-on-JJJ interview. For all of you wondering about RealVideo, the answer is: "yes, it will be available soon."
[9/5/97] - If I have not replied to your email this week, I apologize; again I say that I will be quite busy until late October. MuchMusic viewers, take note: a NewMusic interview with Maynard will air on CityTV on September 19 and 20, and again on MuchMusic on the 30th.
[9/1/97] - Happy September! Not much news of any kind, but that one "Prison Sex" live RealAudio/28.8 file should be working at last.
