A Review of the Fall 1996 Tour

Date: November 1

From: sam (samaruddin@aol.com) Subject: Tool on Nov.1, 1996 Cow opened up fot Tool, it was at Mesa Ampatheatre in Mesa, Arizona. Show started at 7:00 p.m. All in all, it was cool. I really wanted to hear a couple of songs that they didn't play like Prison sex, Intolerance, Bottom, etc. They palyed mostly new stuff, which isn't to say better or worse. They played for about 1 hour 35 minutes. Really notable songs were: Third Eye, Stinkfist (I know it gets way too much airplay...cause now people who listen to Hootie are going oh, I heard that song on the radio, I like Tool now.), and a really, really, really, cool Swamp Song. The new Bassist Justin was introduced...they said he smelled because he was from England. I have a question for you. Last night Maynard said one of the memebers of the band now lives in Arizona, but no where near where they were playing last night...do you know which one, and if so, where they live in AZ..?? Well, if you want to know more specifics, email me back.. sam stewart
