Maynard talks to Spin

Shinji has given me the link to a great interview with Maynard by Spin Magazine.  Maynard talks in depth about his music, in particular Puscifer, and about his life in general.  He also comments that Tool will be sticking around, while A Perfect Circle are dead.

One of the best and informative interviews I’ve read with Maynard, so make sure you check it out.

Great interview i thought, explains the reasons for the attitude Maynard has on stage these days…ironic? the stage shows have evolved and Maynards stage presence(which was a huge reason why people including myself went to see their shows back in the day)has reduced, to me it makes no difference, they are a better live act today without his antics.

Also, I too can confirm that they are pencil booked in to the TSB Arena in Wellington, March next year.

Bring it on!

Oh, it’s such a long interview to go through and point out all the places it seemed depressing. Didn’t anyone else get this strange warm depression from reading it. Like it should be cold, the depression, but it’s warm, almost a nostalgic depression. I mean, Maynard just talks of his life with all his losses, and he speaks so seriously – he just almost reminds me he’s an absolute wreck sometimes. He says APC is dead, he says how performing live isn’t treating him well, just how he’s getting older, and especially the end of the interview, how it says… Read more »

Yeah, I feel the same. Its too bad about A Perfect Circle I guess. I would like to have heard more from them, but they signed their contract, put out three good albums and called it a day. I’m glad to hear that they still have plans for Tool, but in reading about his feelings toward touring and performing those old songs live again, I can’t help but feel there’s only so much more patience he has for it, you know? I wasn’t even really aware he had reasons for not playing those old songs anymore. At least the way… Read more »

probably the best maynard interview i’ve ever read, really gave me an insight into why he’s an ass most of the time. I always thought it was because of his ego, his line about having no talent was classic. Thank you for the interview.

I thought this was good, by the way… “Get out of the nest, for fuck’s sake!” Keenan says, laughing, over a dinner of sliders and salad at the Recovery Room, the only local restaurant that pours his three Caduceus blends. It’s not that he’s ungrateful for what Tool’s success has brought him, but he’s tired of being the poet laureate of the arrested-development set. If the music has been so inspirational to his fans, he says, then “what the fuck have you done with it that you need me to keep doing it?” More people should be fans of the… Read more »
