Tool Drummer Broke Four Ribs
Drummer Danny Carey has admitted that he was the Tool member to have the scooter accident that has been holding up their new album production. He also shared an optimistic outlook on the long-awaited album, saying it could be released in 2013 after all, despite claims from singer Maynard James Keenan that it would take at least another year. Rehearsals were held up by nine critical days in January for the long-awaited new album, the successor to "10,000 Days" in 2006. Carey came off a Vespa scooter while riding in the San Fernando valley only days after another unnamed Tool member had a similar scooter accident. "I cracked four ribs, broke three of them on a motorcycle the other day, so I am kinda laid up at this point. It's making it really painful to play. It's not an easy thing to do," he said. "I was just turning to go on the freeway, and I think I hit some antifreeze or oil or something, and the wheels just slipped right out from under me, and I just hit the pavement really hard!" Carey added that they're hoping to complete the new album inside 2013, but can't guarantee it. Meanwhile, there's hope of a Tool DVD release to follow the new album, after amassing a huge archive of footage over the years. "We have tons of stuff recorded," he told David Farrier. "I hope we do make that happen one of these days. We have lots of video stuff too, we could do a DVD or two whenever we get around to it. We're kind of trying to focus on the new thing now, so we'll go back at some point and do it."
