Adam Jones (musician) Early years and personal life

Jones was born in Park Ridge, Illinois, raised in Libertyville, Illinois. He was accepted into the Suzuki program and continued to play the violin through his freshman year in high school. It was said[by whom?] that as a child he was very different from other children.
He would always skip church in favor of reading Sunday comics. As a child he had an interest in animation, turning his ideas into three-dimensional sculptures, which explains why Tool’s music videos often had 3D-clay effects. He later began to play the acoustic bass in an orchestra.
In addition to playing classical music, Jones played bass guitar in the band Electric Sheep, with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine playing guitar, until Jones moved to California (Morello soon followed). According to both of them, the band was quite unpopular at the time. Jones never received traditional guitar lessons, but instead learned by ear.
On January 27, 2013, Jones became engaged to his girlfriend, painter Korin Faught. The marriage proposal took place before the Royal Rumble event. Their wedding took place on July 6, 2013. They have two children together.

He graduated in 1987.
After graduation, he went to work at Rick Lazzarini’s Character Shop. During the next couple of years, he worked the TV show Monsters.

Adam Jones (musician) Playing style

Adam Jones is known for not predominantly using any particular guitar playing technique, but rather combining many techniques such as “alternately utilizing power chords, scratchy noise, chiming arpeggios, off-beat rhythm patterns, and a quiet minimalism”.
On Lateralus and 10,000 Days, he made heavy use of triplets. Other techniques used to expand his band’s sound repertoire require forms of instrumental experimentation and applications of non-instrumental experimentation as well, such as his use of an Epilady as a plectrum on the Ænima and Lateralus albums for example; continuing in this direction on the Tool song, “Jambi”, Jones uses a talk box. In the song “Third Eye”, he makes use of a guitar slide for the opening.
He has two synthesizers that are listed below in his effects section. Live, Jones can be seen with a large pedalboard full of effects, including a DOD FX-40B Equalizer (EQ) pedal, Boss BF-2 Flanger, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, MXR Micro Amp, Dunlop BB535 and two Boss Master switch/power supply pedals among a few others. In a 1994 interview, he mentioned the band Helmet as an influence.

He helped Green Jellÿ with their costumes.
In 2007 he received the Grammy Award for ‘Best Recording Package’ as art director for his work on 10,000 Days.
Jones came up with the make-up layout the actors wore on the videos for “Schism” and “Parabol/Parabola”.
In his spare time, Jones shoots photography that is used for the visuals at live Tool concerts.
Jones draws his own comics, a habit he began as a young child manipulating his ideas into the 2-D form on paper. An X-Files/30 Days of Night crossover in 2010 was co-written by Jones and 30 Days creator Steve Niles with artwork by Tom Mandrake.

Adam Jones (musician) Wife, Married

Congratulations to Tool guitarist Adam Jones! The trailblazing axeman married artist Korin Faught during a ceremony last month in San Francisco. On top of that, there’s more good news as the couple is expecting their first child.
You may remember Adam Jones’ proposal to Faught. The Tool guitarist pulled some strings with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and asked his girlfriend to marry him at the 2013 Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View in front of a packed arena.
Before the Royal Rumble began, a message appeared on the giant screen which read, “Korin, Adam Jones wants to ask you something… ‘Will You Marry Me?’” Needless to say, Korin said yes.
The news of Jones’ July wedding wasn’t publicly revealed until last night (Aug. 28) after a photo of the couple was posted on Adam Jones’ official Facebook page. The post reads, “Mrs. Jones <3 July 6th, 2013.” Check out a photo of the couple from the wedding at Jones’ Instagram account.
As stated, the wedding isn’t the only monumental news in Jones’ life. The new Mrs. Jones has revealed via her Instagram page that she is pregnant. Two weeks ago, she posted a picture of her baby bump along with the note, “#bumpwatch.”
As for Tool’s next album, drummer Danny Carey recently told us to expect a release in 2014. “We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas,” Carey shares. “We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”
We’d like to give our best wishes to the happy couple. And stay tuned for updates on Tool’s next record as news breaks.
