Tool – Rosetta Stoned (Drum Cover) by John Hill

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Jon Hill covers “Rosetta Stoned” by Tool at 17 years of age. Another installment in his Tool Drum Cover series.

“It has taken a long time, since I first started listening to Tool, to really wrap my head around this song. The polyrythym itself is a truly brilliant work of art and I find it hard to believe anyone could have come up with it. While parts of the song may not seem as difficult, as a whole it is one of the most elaborate songs Tool has ever released. To all those who requested I attempt this song, I know its been awhile. But finally, here it is. Enjoy.”

All of Jon’s videos are performed front to back. While some may require multiple takes, the final product captures continuous play, beginning to end, with no editing tricks.
