TOOL were on FIRE when they recorded their latest album, “Fear Inoculum”. Literally. Well, almost.
The producer of the album says there were candles in the room for visual ambiance, or whatever . . . and drummer DAN CAREY knocked one over with THE POWER OF ROCK.
Quote, “Dan was playing with such power that one of the candles fell over on his floor tom and started burning the floor tom, so the head went on fire.”
In addition to not wanting to die, they also had to put the fire out before the sprinklers came on, which would have ruined the equipment. Luckily, they did.
