Tool Star Gives Update On New Album's Progress
Jones says the band has about twenty ideas that they're currently working on, and when asked specifically if singer Maynard James Keenan had heard the material, he answered in the affirmative.
"Yeah. We have an FTP and a Dropbox and we're in communication. He's got other stuff he does, so we keep him in the loop, and he has written lyrics, but he's still working on that and he'll commit. The best thing for all of us is when the song is done. I don't write leads until the song is done. You want to get a vibe. And Maynard can work on lyrics, but until the song's done and he knows how the end is, he's still figuring out the flow."
"The thing with Tool is you have four critical thinkers who like different stuff, so our process is not an easy one but it's a very rewarding one. So yes, he is exposed to new music. It's always been this way and it probably will always be this way and it's just how people work."
He also shared his thoughts on Maynard's recent controversial comments about being conned into playing a Halloween show with the band. Read about that here.
