Here is an excerpt from The Vine‘s new interview with Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan.
On writing music in his truck, with the music turned up loud: “In general, [it’s about] isolation and being able to focus on the process. The truck just ends up being a functional space for that. It could be anywhere: the shower, a small room, a large room – as long as there’s no distractions.”
“It’s an isolated space without distraction, whether it’s the truck, or a room, or a closet.”
