Judi from Toolarmy pointed me to this short interview with Maynard by Evan Rytlewski from Express Milwaukee. Doesn’t really add much insight into Maynard or the wine, though he does make some suggestions on how to enjoy it properly.
A couple of little things today, Shinji from the French Tool website Salival has posted an interview he did with Buzz from the Melvins. Pictures from their recent show there can be found here. Also, George emailed me a link to a Craigslist/Ebay auction for an autographed bottle of wine, singed by Maynard and Eric. According to the post Maynard rarely signs stuff.

The Augustember edition of the Tool newsletter is now out on Toolband/Army, and as promised it largely talks about Danny & Blair’s recent trip to Maynard’s Vineyard. A somewhat interesting read but don’t expect much Tool insight. There’s also some more information regarding Maynard’s upcoming Wine Signing Sessions at Whole Foods Markets about the place: “Vineyard owners Maynard James Keenan and Eric Glomski kick off signings of 2007 Arizona Stronghold… Read More »Tool Newsletter, Wine Signings

Adam is: working on some undisclosed entertainment industry related project? Guitar Hero perhaps? also involved in the construction of some future band-related endeavor. Building a recording studio perhaps? Spending time playing Halo 3 and watching Baseball games… Read More »June 2008 Newsletter
Posted recently on Toolband/Army and Maynard’s Myspace site: “Today Marks the 5 year anniversary of Judith Marie’s surrender to a 29 year struggle against time and gravity. Take a moment to count your blessings. Remind yourself that life is short. (In Judith’s case, long and painful.) Take a deep breath and allow the petty stuff to disintegrate into dust and blow away.

For those of you interested in Maynard‘s winemaking exploits, Yumasun.com have an article about the recent signings that Maynard held in Arizona. The article talks with Maynard and partner Eric Glomski about the signings, and also about the wine.
I came across an article on Wine Spectator who talk to Law & Order start Christopher Meloni. In the interview he mentions his relationship with Maynard: WS: I understand that winemaker, rock singer and Wine Spectator blogger Maynard James Keenan is something of a wine mentor to you.
