"The alternative metal band Tool has voiced criticism of Scientology. After releasing their first full-length album Undertow in 1993, the band began touring to promote their new work. In May 1993, Tool was scheduled to play the Garden Pavilion in Hollywood but learned at the last minute that the Garden Pavilion belonged to the Church of Scientology, which the band felt clashed with "the band's ethics about how a person should not follow a belief system that constricts their development as a human being".[24] The band's vocalist Maynard James Keenan recalled that he "spent most of the show baa-ing like a sheep at the audience".[25] Scott Schalin reported in Bay Area Music: "Between songs, Keenan, staring first at the lush grounds paid for by devoted L. Ron followers and then into the eyes of his own audience, bayed into the mic like a sheep looking for his shepherd's gate. "Baaaaa! Baaaaa!" the singer bleated."[26] The lyrics to the Tool song "Ænema" contain the phrase: "**** L. Ron Hubbard, **** all his clones."[27]"

I was not aware of this. It's pretty funny, baa-ing like a sheep.

that's what you get when you mix intelligence and punk rock. i wonder if the scientolgists are gonna sue him or come after him in some way now.

tool is awesome, and i like puscifer, though i'm not a fan of a perfect circle, cause it's a bit too emo for me.

Thats total BS

So how do the people who payed to go to the show know? So they payed for a performance and got screwed. Thats wrong to do to your fans. They should get sued big time and have to do free shows again in there for the people who attended. They never got what they payed for.
