TOOL have apparently delayed the writing sessions of their first album since 2006’s “10,000 Days” after two of their members were involved in separate scooter crashes.
Although they don’t want to identify either injured party, TOOL reveal that one anonymous member suffered several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder after his scooter slipped on icy roads. The prang happened just days after another person – only described as someone “involved with Tool” – suffered a head injury and multiple cuts and bruises after their own vehicular accident.
From TOOL‘s official website:
The New Year started off on a bad note as far as writing and arranging sessions for Tool’s next record. For the most part this was due to a ‘minor’ accident on a Vespa scooter (slick road conditions being the cause) by a certain band member that resulted in several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder. Because of the physical nature of the musical instrument involved, 9 DAYS of jamming were lost, although I’m happy to report that the person involved is recovering nicely, so much so, in fact, that writing sessions resumed last Monday (January 21), despite it being a holiday for many.
Coincidently (?), a few days prior to the mishap on the scooter, another person involved with Tool also wound up in the hospital after crashing his Vespa in Hollywood. Although he suffered a head injury (as well as multiple cuts and bruises to his body), I’m quite certain that if you were to order an “Entaphiosis” Hoddie, you would receive an “Entaphiosis” Hoodie.
