My husband Daniel Shaver was shot and killed by a police officer in Mesa, AZ on 1.18.16. The last picture I have of him is a selfies he took at the Tool concert in San Antonio just days before-- had the biggest smile on his face. #JusticeForD a n i e l #DanielShave r #FreeTheFoot a g e #ReleaseTheB o d y C a m #PhilipBrail s f o r d #MesaPoliceD e p a r t m e n t #AR15 #YoureFucked #ShotFiveTim e s #PleaseDontS h o o t M e

I feel lucky to possess a voice similar to MJK, but my range I find to be exquisite, I have a similar range to Scott weiland(rip) but a tone like sully erna and a rasp like layne staley(rip), I always sing along to tool though, MJK and I could be twins when it comes to voice, personally I think my hair is better.. But then again he doesn't have hair anymore lol

My first TOOL song :D s**t I'm old

Pythagorean theorem? It's more so the Fibonacci sequence that the time signature of this song takes after. More of a spiral instead of a triangle. Like Mjk says.... "spiral out!" but again, one math wiz could say that pythag and Fibonacci are one in the same universe. I for one struggle with math, so what do I know. Lol

Nobody does it like Tool does it! Excellent musicians, MJK's voice is like no other. The time signature of this song has some connection to the Pythagorean theorem! F**king geniuses.... x o love 'em

Such a beautiful song. The song structure and aesthetic are well developed as the message of the song is powerful. It's so rare to hear music of this quality. This is the type of music that lives forever.
