Maynard hits 50

April is a popular month for birthdays it appears, and while other sites may be struggling to remember, here at Fourtheye we’d like to say Happy Birthday to Maynard on his 50th year. Maynard will be partying with a couple of Cinquanta shows in May featuring A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and Failure. Word is this won’t be your ordinary show and could feature a few collaborations and guests.

It is customary (when I remember) to post a video capturing some of the finest work of the birthday boy, and this year is no exception. In my opinion, the best recording of Maynard’s vocals is on Salival, in particular the Third Eye cut. For your listening pleasure:

Haven’t heard that version in a while, it’s awesome. They do resonate a lot with Bill Hicks.

True, but there are some “space-time continuum” issues in there somewhere.

The birthday shows sound awesome. And Maynard does it again…decides to spend his birthday sharing his art. Sounds like a neat celebration. Should be special.

1998. they were on fire that tour! especially those ozzfest shows which i was fortunate enough to attend. and a solo show a couple weeks after that. but the ozzfest one was still better!

The scream at 4:24 is incredible. This is my favourite live recording of any band ever. Wish there was visual to along with it.

Best Drummer.

The drummer for Avenged Sevenfold received it.

Wow… I checked out the list of winners… UGH… what a terrible show… How crappy is that for such a bad ass drummer to hand a supposed “Best Drummer Award” out to someone so sleazy and… not that great at all…

Seems to be a sort of hilarity to any award show.
