When the record company censored "Hush" they proved Maynard's point. I can't say what I want to, even if I'm not serious. Things like.... "Fuck yourself, kill yourself, you piece of shit."
People tell me what to say, what to think , and what to play. It has become apparent that this is not remote to omnipotent bands such as TooL. It is happening in simple lj communities. *** Here anyone can say what they want. There is no fear of being banned or persecuted. This is a safe community for brainstorms of any kind, TooL or otherwise, feel free to speak up. I had a theory, shared it, banned because, and now I have a community. Because of said theory and it's controversy and outcome, I will be active and take an interest in everything.
THE THEORY The band TooL is comprised of 2 aliens and 2 semi-aliens. Maynard and Adam are the "true alien" band members, so I will go into more detail about them in a minute. From all their planets, which are musically beyond ours, they are the ones who sucked the most, and were considered banished on the basis that Maynard couldn't sing high enough, Adam wasn't fast enough or creative enough on guitar, and Danny got shipped because he isn't 'truly' alive, and they needed a drummer.
First, Danny is a robot. He was made by aliens to drum with perfection at any speed without fail. He is outfitted with a synthetic human looking skin, so that he wouldn't feel left out of the group when they came to earth. He is by far the most talented in skill I have ever witnessed... look at the calve muscles!! Now, Justin. He joined the band after the original bassist "disappeared off the face of the earth" (his mom missed him so he went home.) He was already partially alien and had been on earth for a while and Maynard found him and you know the rest. Basically, he was incorporated, and he adapted and became one with the band. Adam Jones, is by far one of the best animators ever. Sober still creeps me, and I know that it's clay... at least that's what I tell myself. He is, in his original form, 10 feet tall and a bunch of blue gooey mass. He is the prettiest of the group because his people are shapeshifters, so it was far too easy for him to adapt a form that was both convincing and attractive. He does have the best disguise. Now Maynard. Maynard has no actual spine. The ink of his tattoo is the most that he has, so therefore, his 'spine' is made of ink. He moves in the most disturbing/beautiful way. He has lungs that are the length from his collarbone to his knees. That's why he can scream, on key, for so long. He also has infallable timbre. He only uses a mic so we won't catch that he's actually just singing, without any power in them. He is also a lyrical genius. That's my opinion. Use your better judgement in dealing with others. If something is going wrong, I will address it openly in the community. I am not God here, if there is a problem, it will be to the decision of the whole, not of one.
