During the interview with Kerrang!, TOOL’s Maynard James Keenan talks about wants to pass along some messages to humanity:
“Here we are in the middle of our existential reckoning… It came from watching things progress over the years. It’s us losing touch with things that I would consider as mattering. All this stuff happened before coronavirus.
Western culture has lost the plot. I think there’s a way out, but we’ve got to remember how to talk to each other, and how to survive without destroying too much.”
Maynard also added:
“You have to choose to make this an inclusive better place for everyone. Is everyone with any power trying to drive wedges between us?
Fuck yeah, every day! We have to make the choice, as individuals, to be better people – to do no harm, treat your neighbor as you would yourself – all those things that down through the ages have been chiseled into stone as a way we have to be. Right now, more than ever, this is our existential reckoning!”

I was wondering why the llanguage was a bit choppy. So, you do alright for non english speaking.
I love rock music, especially Tool and anything Keenan touches. His lyrics are profound and thought prociking. It is awesome he can say so much with so few words. Good luck with your site!
English is not my mother language. I try to learn but sometimes I can’t adapt to myself. For this news most of them Maynard own words we don’t change the interview. Thanks for your kind reply 🙂 Keep reading us. We can do better than yesterday.
Maynard is beginning to look more and more like Corrado Soprano every day. Uncle Jun. Lol
Yunus, your English is great. Melissa, not so much.
