The Webb Allstars live review - The Baked Potato, California
Venue: The Baked Potato, California
Tool's Danny Carey joins Doug Webb for their monthly jazz experiment
Danny Carey is taking up half the stage with his drum kit. It’s not of the same magnitude as what he uses with Tool, but tonight Carey is performing to one per cent of the people he would play to in his other job. It’s big enough that his bandmate Jimmy Earl – who plays in TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s live band – is forced to manoeuvre his Fender from the floor next to the stage, swinging it skilfully around a few of the 100 audience members’ heads. They’re not complaining, but their faces suggest they’re as wary as anyone that a bass guitar to the head is gonna hurt.
