Throwback Thursday: Umphrey’s Finally Covers Tool

by Rob Slater on May 01, 2014

One of the biggest build-ups in, potentially, Umphrey's McGee history came in the form of Tool's "Forty Six & 2" during the band's 2012 tour.

Then finally, it happened. The Tool classic appeared on the UMBowl ballot for that year and of course it ended up as the highest vote-getter next to the Grateful Dead's "Help On the Way" > "Slipknot!"

As the band readies to hit the stage on Saturday for the fifth UMBowl--what memories will they make in Port Chester?
