Tool drummer Danny Carey revealed that he broke four ribs in a scooter crash in January. The band recently explained work on their new album had been delayed after one of them had been involved in a traffic accident.
Carey says, "It's been tough lately — it's making it really painful to play. It was over in the San Fernando Valley. I was just turning to go on the freeway and I think I hit some antifreeze or oil or something. The wheels just slipped right out from under me and I hit the pavement really hard."
Carey is currently recovering, and says that Tool's next album will be out, "sometime this year — that’s all I can say. The sooner the better for us. We’re really excited about it, so I hope the fans will be too."
