According to Maynard
So what did Maynard James Keenan talk about in his first column for the Phoenix New Times? Well, in fine style, Maynar talks about his winemaking, but that’s not all. The Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer front man also said that we are living in the End of Days and that everyone should empty their bank accounts and send him cashiers checks and a list of all their assets, toys, deeds, and patents. He says that the bad thing about being a pessimist is that when the world does end he can’t stand up and say “I told you so.” The tongue-in-cheek column can be read online here.
What's the latest?
Speaking of Maynard—his band A Perfect Circle has one show scheduled for this year. They’ll be playing in Las Vegas December 29th at Planet Hollywood. His other band Tool hasn’t released a new album since 2006 but rumors persist that they’re working on new material separately to come together to lay down the new tracks. There’s no word on when that will be out.
