It was supposed to be ready for his 50th, but it finally looks like the Maynard James Keenan biography (no longer an autobiography as initially thought) will finally see the light of day next fall. Presumably that’s a northern hemisphere fall, so probably around this time in 2016. That’s a fair way off for something I thought was pretty much done, but I am not wise to the ways of book publishing.
Here’s the statement from the Puscifer Facebook page:
And away we go!

“We have, as they say, inked the deal.
It’s been a year-long journey of proposals and queries and nibbles and “nope”s, but my amazing agent, Ann Collette, never lost faith in the dream.
The agreement with Backbeat Books is a reality, and the biography of Maynard Keenan is slated for publication next fall.
Lots of work still to be done, but today’s priority: feeling grateful to everybody who’s been there for us throughout this project. That means you!”
I enjoy a good (and even a bad) Rock n’ Roll biography, so am looking forward to it!
