Tool guitarist Adam Jones proposed to his girlfriend Korin with a unique ringside event at the WWE Royal Rumble showdown in Phoenix on Sunday night (January 27th). According to Loudwire, just before the Royal Rumble went on the air at 8:00 p.m. ET, a message appeared on the WWE's giant "titantron" video screen, saying, "Korin, Adam Jones wants to ask you something... 'Will you marry me?'"
- With cameras surrounding them, Jones produced a ring and waited for Korin's answer -- which luckily for him was "yes."
- Jones is an avid WWE fan and once performed the national anthem at the WWE SuperSlam 2011.
- Just before Christmas, Tool's webmaster posted that the band may be "more than halfway" finished writing the music for their fifth studio effort.
- The webmaster wrote that he heard some new music without vocals. adding, "Dare I say that it sounded like . . . Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope), and I assume that it will sound even more like Tool once the vocal melodies, etc. have been added."
- Tool's last album, 10,000 Days, came out in 2006. Since that time the band has toured almost every year, while singer Maynard James Keenan has tended to his Arizona vineyard business and recorded two albums with Puscifer.

Someone so talented enjoys something completely f***ing stupid (and fake) and has been a shell of its earlier years for a very long time."
