Maynard James Keenan: “I’m pretty sure people were touring after the pandemic”
Maynard James Keenan hope “people were touring after the pandemic” in his latest interview. He recently revealed the battle with COVID-19 and he back with PUSCIFER‘s new album.
TOOL, PUSCIFER, and A PERFECT CIRCLE‘s frontman talk that he is afraid to be deaf. Maynard also revealed in another interview with the Arizona Republic and The Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode, he disclosed that he contracted coronavirus. This happened when the TOOL band was on tour in Australia and New Zealand at the end of February 2020. He also added “I still has lung damage” because of the COVID-19.
During an interview with Consequence of Sound, Maynard James Keenan hopes they and the peoples touring after the ongoing pandemic:
“There’s logic attached to just looking out for each other,” Keenan told us. “I have a lot more questions than answers, honestly. Is this thing like a flame on a candle? If you stand in the corner far enough away from somebody, does the flame burn the candle down, and then it can no longer light your candle? Or is it not like that at all, and it’s going to live on beyond its own cycle within you?
I have no idea, but the idea of temporarily isolating and really adhering to the isolation, it seems like that would’ve worked.
But we tend to be fairly arrogant. I knew what I went through and I know what I’m still going through, so I would recommend that you take this seriously. But I feel like that’s just going to fall on deaf ears.
It’s just going to be a polarized, politicized statement, so it’s pointless. In that case, I’m just going to worry about keeping my family safe and keeping my friends safe.”
Maynard also added about touring after the pandemic:
“I think you need to vote for more funding and education, so people learn history. When you go back and learn history, then you start looking at various pandemics around the world throughout history to see what happened before, during, and after, and then make a plan based on that.
I’m pretty sure people were touring after the pandemic hit back in the early 1900s. So, eventually, it works out. Is it going to work out immediately? I don’t know.”
Maynard another band PUSCIFER‘s latest album ‘Existential Reckoning’ released at end of October 2020. You can also pre-order here.
