Maynard on Suicide Girls

Badkittygothgirl from Toolarmy posted a like to a video interview done by Erin from the Suicide Girls where Maynard talks about the creative process behind Puscifer. Here’s the article:

“Enigmatic is a misnomer. Most likely a byproduct of my absence in the press. An assumption arrived at due to the lack of available information, accurate or otherwise. I don’t do that many interviews. General because of my private life and my classified activities, but mostly because I’m not very good at them. The conversation in my head never matches the conversation that ends up in print.” — Maynard James Keenan

Meet Maynard James Keenan — musician, winemaker, connoisseur, alchemist, undercover CIA operative, and (as most of you might know him) frontman for Tool, A Perfect Circle and, most recently, Puscifer. Keenan describes Puscifer as, “The space where my Id, Ego and Anima come together to exchange cookie recipes.” Puscifer is more than just a band; for Keenan it’s a multifaceted, multimedia, multi-artist, multi-personality project that takes shape in a variety of media such as film, music, digital video, clothing, feminine hygiene products, coffee, pet supplies, websites, blogs… you name it.

The week before Puscifer’s full-length debut V is for Vagina hit stores on October 30, Keenan invited SuicideGirls down to his winery in Arizona (Caduceus Cellars/Merkin Vineyards) to chat about music and where his interest in alchemy began. Oh yeah, and he told us to bring a video camera.

    Off topic… just back from Muse. Fucking awesome show, seriously fucking good.

    If TOOL dare play a venue different to Rod Laver when they next visit melbourne it will be a crime. The sound there compared to what most, the hill folk, heard at the music bowl was insane – so fucking loud.

    Guitar fucking hero is muse.

    [quote comment="33217"]Can’t wait for Muse next Friday. So the last rumour for Tool in NZ/Aus is around March still, right?[/quote]
    Yeah, still just speculation at this stage, and I haven’t heard anything substantial to back this rumour up yet.

    My gut feeling at the moment is that this current US tour is probably the last for this album, but I hope I’m wrong.
