DRAGONFORCE Guitarist Comments On TOOL Guest Appearance

DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li was up on stage with TOOL on August 22 at the Brixton Academy in London, England. Near the end of TOOL's set, Herman was invited on stage in the middle of the song "Lateralus" to perform a guest guitar solo. He commented after the show: "TOOL's a unique band. It was fun to enter their world and improvise something to their style of music in front of their big audience."
