Tool Member Reveals What’s ‘Frustrating’ About Future


Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan was recently interviewed by Kerrang, and he revealed what is frustrating.

What is the most frustrating thing about being Maynard James Keenan?

“Hmm… time. The lack of it, and the changes that come with it moving on. But I think that’s the same for anybody, really.”

Does the idea of burning it down to build it back up appeal?

“Yes. I think there are things that should never have a part two. I’m hoping that A Perfect Circle doesn’t fall in that category, because here we are 14 years later, and I’m hoping that what we have to say is as powerful, or as funny, as the new League Of Gentlemen series.”

In the 2010 documentary Blood Into Wine, there’s a moment in which you tell actor Milla Jovovich that in 15 years live shows will be a fun break from winemaking. Do you feel your relationship with music changing?

“Only because of age and limitations. Your body changes and there are things that you can’t do, which is why people aren’t competing in the Olympics at the age of 40 – because they fucking can’t.”
