Danny Carey of Primus/Tool, and Queens of the Stone Age’s troy Van Leeuwen have released a live video of Tool’s classic song “Ænima.” Performed this month at a benefit concert at the Belasco in Los Angeles for their friend, film director, animator, and screenwriter Jimmy Hayward, who is undergoing cancer treatment. One-of-a-kind merchandise from the concert, autographed by all performers, is being auctioned with all proceeds going to support Hayward. A GoFundMe has also been set up to raise funds for Hayward and his family. Donations can be made here.
Primus’ Les Claypool commented:
“Every now and again, cancer steps into our world and pulverizes the lives of people that are dear to us. Such a thing happened a while back with our good friend Jimmy Hayward. Over the past couple years, Jimmy has undergone many major surgeries to remove then reconstruct major damage from a cancer that invaded his bones. With a wife and two very young children at hand, Jimmy has shown incredible courage and tenacity in an unbelievably challenging time.”
