Joe Rogan recently discussed Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan on his podcast.
“I do know one guy, Maynard Keenan from Tool. He’s a friend of mine, he’s actually in town. He has a vineyard, a real vineyard in Arizona. He makes great wine, oh my god. He’s an artist, he’s a weird motherfucker. Super super smart guy, and makes wine the same way he makes music. They made a Tool album and one of the songs was they wrote a song to the Fibonacci sequence.
He wrote a song to the Fibonacci sequence. The Fibonacci sequence is a mathematical sequence. The way it works is it goes like 0, the next number is 1, and the next number is 2, and then 2+1 which is 3, and it keeps going in this mathematical progression. That’s how they had the chord progression. They had the chord progression link up to the Fibonacci sequence. He’s a fucking maniac. But that same sort of attention to detail and obsessing over the intricacies of things, he’s actually applied that to his wine. His wine is amazing, it’s really good.”
“I think he gave me the flu, that fuck. He told me he just got over the flu, I’m like, ‘Ooooh, you shithead!’ I was hanging out with him in Vegas, and I think that’s when I started to catch it. I had a little bit of a cough, and it got worse.”
