Tool Tour

I noticed this news a few days ago but with it being a very small rumor ive put off posting it, but with news being sparse right now, i feel i might as well share it with those who missed it.

Toolshed posted the following:
Though all has been quiet on the Tool front for some time, a promoter wrote in today to say he's heard rumblings of possible Tool shows in 2009. We'll keep an eye on this and keep you all posted.

Personally, im looking for news of a new album before i even think about there being a tour, but who knows(which is why i posted this).

this vid is a few weeks old, but you may have missed it. It is featured on XboxLive as a promo for Guitar Hero 4.

You too can be the proud owner of Maynard's pants

News showed up on Fourth Eye that I felt the need to reproduce: You can bid on Maynard's leather pants from the Undertow photo shoot. You can see more photos on the eBay listing, from which I've cribbed the following ALL CAPS DESCRIPTION.
THESE LEATHER PANTS WERE LEFT BEHIND IN MY STUDIO 16 YEARS AGO, AFTER WE FINISHED SINGER'S DAY OF SOLO PHOTOS. THEY'VE BEEN FOLDED IN MY GARAGE EVER SINCE I SHOT ALL THE ARTWORK FOR UNDERTOW IN 1992. THEY ARE BEYOND DIRTY BUT THEY ARE DEFINITELY THE PANTS WORN IN MY PHOTOS. SUPER SMALL SIZE, THATS WHY THE BUTTON IS NOT CLOSED IN THE EXAMPLE PHOTO. SIZE 26 FROM THE "LEATHER LOFT" THIS IS ABOUT AS RARE AN ITEM YOU'LL FIND IF YOU LIKE THIS BAND.

Looks like bidding on these dirty, dirty old leather pants is currently at $185. If you run a Hard Rock Cafe or something, this should be right up your alley.
