Tool’s Danny Carey Rocks Out With Some Kids for a Good Cause

From Music for Good:

It’s hard to think of a more heart-warming scene than a 6’5” metal drummer jamming with a bunch of enamored kids. On Friday night, Tool drummer Danny Carey did just that, thrilling a bunch of aspiring young musicians at the School of Rock in West L.A.

Carey – a founding member of one of the world’s biggest rock bands and widely considered a world-class drummer – performed Tool and Led Zeppelin tunes with several long-haired teens who ably filled in on guitar, bass and vocals.

Between jams, Carey fielded questions from the kids and their equally elated parents, and offered advice about becoming a successful musician.

Nice.  Now can we get back to making a Tool album?
