Maynard James Keenan from Tool frontman talks for the world’s future. He also just reveals he is hopeful about the future despite the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. After Tool’s latest album ‘Fear Inoculum‘ release in August 2019 and the recent A Perfect Circle LP, Eat the Elephant. They got much more successful with this record and won the Grammy. Earlier this month, Puscifer band release of their new single Apocalyptical. We also know this band and frontman Maynard. Tool band already postponed its 2020 tour to 2021.
Last day, Maynard James Keenan interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music for a video call and tells about this time and future:
“I feel like we’re going to go through a lot of changes; we’re going to go through a lot of growing pains — and not all of us are going to make it through those growing pains. That’s the hardest part, as a human being to really grasp: that you might not be a part of what happens over the crest in that new valley. You just might not be there because you didn’t pay attention to the basics. You didn’t listen to the wind, you didn’t smell the air… simple things.”
Then Maynard added:
“People have, I guess, complimented or acknowledge, or they claim, that there’s a lot of prophetic things that came out on Eat The Elephant, prophetic things on [Fear] Inoculum, probably prophetic things on [the new Puscifer record]. But it’s not really prophetic, it’s just understanding patterns, and understanding human nature and where we’re going. Although they might seem specific, they’re not. They’re human experience. At my age I’ve seen quite a few things and have tried to keep open-minded about things – not always assuming you’re right just because you’re successful, and kind of reevaluate those things.
I mean, even right now: last night we had pasta with tomatoes and basil from our garden, drinking our own wine. It’s one of those things that didn’t happen overnight. We had to work for that. You had to pay attention to that. You had to be in touch because some things just don’t grow everywhere. You have to be in touch with where you are, where you’re going. I could claim, ‘Look how I was right 25 years ago when I planted that orchard and planted that garden.’ That’s absurd. I just like planting things.”
However, last month Tool drummer Danny Carey revealed that maybe release EP with Tool members. You can watch and listen to the Maynard James Keenan interview below.
