US Soccer | Tool

As I mentioned in a previous post, Tool invited Kasey Keller, Marcus Hahnemann and Ryan Maxfield of the US Soccer team to their recent concert in Hamburg where the US is training. Well, here's a photo of them with the band.

Maxfield is in the front. Hahnemann is on the far left and Keller is behind Maxfield.

Here's what Tool wrote about it on their website:

Minutes away from the band taking the stage here in Hamburg, Germany and, so far, no problems to report other than Danny's helicopter, a serious lack of mustard, and these strange dudes in the Tool dressing room. Wait a second, they're members of the U.S. World Cup soccer team (that's what's keeping the band from taking the stage on time.) Okay, a few stolen beers and we're all good to go.
It's cool that Coach Bruce Arena is giving the players the freedom to take advantage of things like this. Apparently, that approach to treating the players (giving them freedom to explore the city and letting their families come over) is completely baffling to the German media. I saw one clip of an interview with Arena where a German journalist said, in a shocked tone, "The players are bringing in girls?!?!" Arena sternly corrected the guy, "They're their families! Not girls."

Glad to see that Tool is cool with the U.S. players, especially since I'm a fan of both parties.

Hope the World Cup is treating you well!
