For as good as Tool's studio sound is, they are even better live. Probably only Metallica sounds better in concert.

Ah man, I really like both these bands.

Undertow is my official skiing disk (tape back in the day).

On the other hand, Tesla was one of the best half a rock shows I have ever seen. I say half because they blew the sound system. Either that or Def Leppard (headliner) was intimidated and pulled the plug. Those were my party days! I highly recommend picking up or at least listening to Mechanical Resonance, the debut album by Tesla.

Tesla gets my vote in what probably will be a losing effort. They get no respect.

Truly? Saw them live last summer, and was a bit disappointed.

Maybe an off day...

After careful consideration and listning to both bands....I decided to go with Tesla...I think Acoustical Jam did it for me... :-)

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Was it Tool or APC? I didn't think Tool had done any shows since the end of the Lateralus tour in 2003.
