Maynard James Keenan
Every now and then, you get people who tend to forget what this country is about, which is a melting pot of races and cultures and freedom of speech.
Keenan quotes
Itís in my blood. My great-grandfather made wine and itís a tradition I want to pass on to my son.
Keenan
I think thereís a reason why wine figures into so many religions. Thereís something transcendent about it. Itís sort of the way that music is more than the sum of its parts. You have all these elements that make up the terroir that wine can communicate.




Keenan Maynard James quotes
It's the role of us to run our government, the government by the people, for the people, and I don't think our government is listening to the people. It's our role as patriots to question them, because we elected them. And if they're not fairly and accurately representing us, it's the job of the people, the patriots, to take their country back.
Keenan Maynard James
The army influences everything I do. Certainly it teaches you discipline, which is a necessary element of development. I think there's more of a collaborative understanding in the band because of that.
Maynard James Keenan quotes
You really should be able to feel the higher power of music and be moved by it, rather than listening to me waffle on and having to explain it.
Maynard James Keenan
It's a purging of sorts. Like, when you're all done doing your laundry and it's fresh and bright, but washing the clothes, you wouldn't want to get in while it's spinning around.
Keenan Maynard James quotes
One of my biggest heroes in music has been David Bowie. He's said, `I'm going to be a painter now, or I'm going to do some films,' and his audience is very forgiving, because they understand him as an artist. Whether you agree or like the result, you respect that he's expressing his artistic feelings.
Keenan
The process that we go through in recording with Tool is very organic, but at the same time it is very thought out. There is a very left-brain process of dissecting what we're doing and drawing from source material; it's very research oriented and esoteric.
Keenan Maynard James
For the music, itís not about the individual ó so the more you let the music speak for yourself, the more powerful the music will be.
Maynard James Keenan
You can grow grapes in almost any part of the world. You just have to develop your palate enough to realize wine is an expression of the place where you make it. You don't have to take over the world; just be an artist and express your area.




Maynard James Keenan quotes
Tool is not Slayer. I went to art school. I spent three years in the military. There's more to me than throwing devil horns.
