During a recent conversation with Revolver, band bassist Alessandro Venturella says that he received an awesome contribution from Tool that helped him out big time on the new Slipknot album The End, So Far.
Specifically, when it comes to the band’s new song “Adderall,” Venturella says that Tool bassist Justin Chancellor hooked him up with one of his very own instruments! Speaking to his work on the song “Adderall” and this awesome hook up from Justin, the Slipknot bassist shares the following:
“When we did ‘Adderall,’ we were looking around and I didn’t want to use my standard bass that I use live. Kindly, Justin from TOOL lent us this really old p-bass. That’s the bass that I wrote with [for] ‘Adderall.'”
Alessandro then adds, “Those [are the] types of little things that just make the album special.”
That is pretty cool of Justin to hook up Alessandro with his bass! It is neat to know that there is a small element of Tool within the new Slipknot album.
