Classic example, posted on CL yesterday:
Tool-inspired drummer seeks Tool-inspired musicians.
I'm a 21-year-old novice but aspiring drummer, and feel my life has been changed by Tool's music style. I've been working to assemble a cover band / band to make music in a similar vein, but feel I need to expand my search.
Dear sweet jezus, I would kill for a Tool-inspired bassist, of any skill level, who pumps out dark, ominous, sometimes ambient sometimes intense bass riffs that my roommate and I could build on. If you're a guitarist or an interested musician of any other kind or background, I'd still be interested in meeting.
I feel I can "see" the formula of Tool's music, and believe I could fulfill the role Danny provides, but I need a guitarist, bassist especially, or lyricist to create with. I currently have 5 or 6 songs coming along which I'm excited to realize.
