Andrew McMillen from The Vine got the chance to speak to Maynard recently, and discuss Puscifer, Winemaking, Australia and definitely nothing about Tool. It is an excellent interview and here’s a snippet:
Is that different to what you were doing when you were touring in your 20s and 30s?
Well, you know, back then you have a little more resilience, and you can kinda push it a little harder, move a little faster. You don’t necessarily have to pay attention to maintenance much.
I get the impression that all of your musical output these days – touring, releasing music – is done primarily to fund your wine business. Am I way off the mark?
Hmm… no. I think the touring is just because we like to play music and we like to perform. The wine business – it takes care of itself. Of course, there’s a lot of initial investment, from prior touring. I used a lot of that money to get it going, but that was instead of buying a Ferrari.
Surprised you didn’t mention the biography.
So am I
If he’s being honest there, this wipes out any theories that he is still in Tool purely for the cash. Also, I found it weird that he didn’t wanna talk about APC when they are on the shows that are the main reason he was being interviewed for.
a very one true-like interview
Ferrari’s are shit anyway. Orange lamborghini’s are the way of the future…
What no Petraeus jokes? What is MJK’s biography going to be called. Anal In: 4 Degrees Deeper with MJK?
He probably did ask him about Tool but MJK just cocked his head to the side gave a blank stare and asked “who the hell is Tool”
MJK entertains me. If I was a chic, id hit it.
