I think a lot of people just get the wrong impression about Tool from their fans and Maynard's sarcasm.
And as for this comment:
...and definetly the most talented band of the 90's
I disagree, a whole bunch. Tomahawk alone harnesses more talent then them. I could go on and on, not to say I dislike Tool or don't recognize their talent, I just don't think they're the MOST talented of the 90s.
