    Man, I couldn't even hit the wrong drums that fast.

      It's not about being difficult. You must give yourself to the music. Feel the song. Let it take you. Be the song. Danny has always been comfy with odd timing. He just plays what the song tells him it needs. When you've played as many times as he has, it's second nature. I doubt he's even thinking about it. Probably thinking "Damn, I'm thirsty!" or "I could go for a good hotdog right about now" 😉

      That's the way I feel when I listen to the last minute of "Pushit" (live version or studio version). I literally can't listen to it sitting down. I have to stand up and rock out looking like a total idiot in the process but I don't care.

    This video made my wife finally appreciate Tool. 15 years of me listening to it didn’t do it for her. Sometimes you just have to see how amazing something is with your own eyes to appreciate it. She surprised me with Tool concert tickets, which we just went and saw in Minneapolis. The bond is tighter now🤘🏻❤️

    Danny Carey, dude is probably in the top 5 of rock/metal drummers of all time. And to be playing 10 minute songs in his 60s, is beast mode.

    6:11-8:54... pretty sure Danny is actually performing magic/"magick" on stage. I don't believe in that stuff, but when you try to unpack what he's doing with each limb, how the strokes relate to each other, how the patterns progress, probably even the "shape" he's "drawing" with his arms when he plays them...
    I sound like I'm on psychadelics, but it feels like it might be true because I'm stone cold sober thinking through all this. Dude must be tapping into some other world to make music like that.

    Remember my friend in college telling me about Tool. He was a musician and told me they have one of the best, if not THE best rhythm sections of any band he's heard, which is saying a LOT. Its something when someone who is a musician says something like that, you immediately go out and find their music.
    First couple of listens, I'm thinking, "Yeah, not bad, but surely not one of the best."
    Then you dig in, then my friend starts pointing out specific sections of songs, then you start hearing the technicality in what Danny and Paul are doing, then you listen more closely, then it finally hits you what level these guys are on - and then you agree, yeah, they are easily in the top three rhythm sections of any band you've known. You can easily make an argument for them being the best.

A totally immersive experience. I love the way they are uncompromising in their music and don’t pander to anyone. You either like it or don’t, and they couldn’t care less.

    You can tell this isn't a walk in the park for him. He appears extremely focused, and he left nothing on the table. He worked his ass off, physically and mentally, to accomplish this awe inspiring performance. A master at his zenith.

      Since he is the original artist, any way he plays it is correct. What are you basing the reference standard off of? if you are using the original recording as a reference standard, maybe he didn’t like the original version and has decided this version is now correct.

    I used to work out at the gym with Danny Carey and he is the coolest guy. Like a normal person he would ask for a spot and spot you on bench etc and shoot the shit. It seems we had similar schedules so I saw him their often. I am a guitar player and a huge tool fan but I didn’t recognize him. He even wore the Carey jersey and I didn’t put two and two together, I thought he was in to sports and I don’t follow sports. No body guards or attitude just a down to earth human.
    One day my friend came with me to the gym who is a guitar player as well. I started talking to Danny and afterwards my friend was loosing it. He said “do you know who the fuck that is”! I was like yeah Danny he’s a pretty cool guy. He’s says that’s Danny fucken Carey from tool. It took every bone in my body not to geek out and make a fool of myself after that.
    Eventually, down the road we were talking about music and sure enough he was the drummer for tool. It was epic to workout next to Danny for a year and a half while I was at music school. He definitely doesn’t have an attitude or a huge ego just a down to earth awesome human.

I'm not a Tool fan, but I Totes Respect them all. It's plain to see he is a gentle giant in many ways. And a master musician too.

    Saw them for the first time the other night in KC. Massive, completely seamless experience. Danny KILLED it in front of the hometown crowd, and I think his energy was infectious for the whole band. Even Maynard gave him a shout-out from the back of the stage before the last song. (Granted, he called him "THIS idiot," but it was affectionate sarcasm.) Loved when DC came out, with a big grin on his face, and did a little bow for the fans after the encore.

    if watching with keeping attention, you will see that since ~8:23 Danny starts to hit with order from left to right and decreasing the hits like 5x0 4x1, 3x2, 2x3, 1x5 times, which ends at 8:53.. this is mindblowing implementation !!!

      @Kevin Key Neil is one of my biggest musical heroes. RIP. I can watch him play all day and never get bored. What I enjoy about Danny is that he plays with such joy and pain, happiness and anger, technicality and balls, whereas Neil is a technical master and master songwriter. They shouldn't be compared, really, they are kindred spirits from different planets. Don't say "better" or "worse" when you're talking about masters. It makes you look like a music geek (something that I used to be).

      @nz south12 That's not the point, Chuck said "The most perfect drum performance ever caught on camera" which is objectively false. The small hiccup at 10:46 is a pathetic critique and the most miniscule smudge on an otherwise legendary performance, but Jack isn't wrong.

    This is a masterpiece which will inspire countless humans for many, many years. If it was beamed it into space, it's harmony would bring beings far and wide to seek out it's creator. Thusly, Danny Carey the one who brought the universe together. One space, one time. Perpetual existence not forgetting now or what once was. A breath of strength to not fear the unknown nor the jealously of darkness but instead a rhythmic solace whereas all is one and one is all. Darkness cannot remember with no light. And in that center of the great void a reason to remember what love was shown and given. For it strengthens memories which the void cannot destroy. Information remains to embrace not how far you've gone nor the time it taketh away but the journey itself. Wonder at it's might. Stare into it's being. Breathe and let not the mind cease to explore.

      @Tauno Kekkonen everyone may be different. Sometimes I can only hear 3 or 4 but others swear they hear more.
      But just analyze. Carefully and listen close. May have to slow it down. Just pay attention to same events in a small timeframe. Eventually you’ll form a rhythm. And you’ll get it.
