Maynard had this to say about the band (via Artist Direct):
Maynard James Keenan: Failure has been a huge inspiration to me. They say, “Amateurs borrow and professionals steal.” Well, over the years, this pro has robbed these poor saps blind. Biting their style has become second nature. But please don’t tell them that…
A truly excellent band.
Because everyone loves your opinions.
Surprised you haven’t been slagging their absence all these years and how irrelevant they have now become.
“These jerks have hurt my feelings so many times year after year after year.. :(” – maynerd’s true feelings about failure.
That’s b/c he’s just envious that they were relevant in the first place.
Loneliness is a burden that he doesn’t bear very well.
