Love Tool, hate Tool fans.
    #8790591 - 08/18/08 01:33 PM (9 years, 8 months ago)

So, I'm sure atleast some of you are familiar with the band Tool.


Maynard is an incredible lyricist and very visionary in his work, atleast in my opinion.
Lateralus
Jambi
Vicarious
Schism
Etc.


Yet, at the times they got down and grimy.
Aenima
Ticks and Leeches
Hooker with a Penis



Now about the Tool fans.

Somewhere along the line, most possibly due to generic-attention-seeking-whore-idiot-emo-faggots, the average Tool fan is generalized as the greasy kid in the back of the room that hangs out with the other greasy kids.  Stupid.


So yeah, just a rant from me.

Agreed. I love Tool, and am no where near that stereotype, but most people assume all Tool fans are.

It sucks.

I would have to agree, many times I see him as a bit pretentious and less than poetic. But he does have his light hearted and funny songs thats for sure. Either way I really like Tool, but mostly for their instrumentals (I usually like instrumentals, not much of a lyrical fan).

Either way, its kinda annoying that people seem so concerned about a given bands fans, you either like them or not. Dont let the "greasy kids" at the concert bother you too much...

Luckily for me I never signed a record contract.
In fact, I don't think I've ever even attempted to write lyrics.

It's really silly to say that anyone sucks at "lyricism".  Have a listen to a children's song.  I'm sure the lyrics seem so silly and worthless, but a child can relate and they may trigger hir imagination and abstract development.  Complex lyrics that an adult might relate to would be worthless to the child.  Lyrics are only as good as how one relates to them within the context of the music.  The person who came up with the word 'qualitative' needs a kick in the pooper for it's really quite senseless.  Personally, I relate very well to tool's lyrics.

As for the fans?  Well, I'll admit that many of them seem to "miss it".  But I'm sure that happens with most bands, even the less popular ones.  One could turn the other cheek, but for live performances the fans are an integral part of the performance.  An intelligent musician once demonstrated the logic that the perfect performance is the resultant of the synergy between music-musician(s)-audience-audient.  One part of the equation out of line and the whole experience suffers.  I feel that the type of 'fans' who mosh during wings certainly do'nt help the situation.
