Paul d'Amour (born June 8, 1968 in Spokane, Washington) was the original bassist for Tool.

Originally a guitar player, Paul was introduced to Tool by guitarist Adam Jones. Like Adam, Paul was in Los Angeles because of his wish to enter the film industry. He hadn't played music for a while and was thinking about giving it up. He was angry often and, at the time, Tool's music suited him perfectly.

In 1995, Paul amicably left Tool because of a desire to do something more experimental. After his departure from the band, he formed the critically acclaimed psychedelic pop band Lusk with Brad Laner, Chris Pitman (now of Guns N' Roses), and ex-Failure member Greg Edwards (now of Autolux). In 1997 they released their only album to date, titled Free Mars.

Prior to his departure from Tool, Paul also played guitar in a side-project called Replicants, a cover band that included Ken Andrews and Greg Edwards from Failure, as well as Chris Pitman. They released one self-titled album in 1995, with a guest appearance from Maynard James Keenan.

As of early 2006, Paul has been writing and performing under the name Feersum Ennjin, which owes its phonetically spelled name to the science fiction novel Feersum Endjinn by Iain M. Banks — an author whose novel The Wasp Factory was conceptual inspiration for Lusk as well. The project has one self-titled EP.
