*[fourtheye.net] The much anticipated Joe Rogan show with Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer, etc) is now online, and as expected is quite good! It’s a long and interesting conversation where Maynard touches on a range of subjects including Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Wine making, Martial Arts, Drug experiences, Lateralus, wrestling Tool fans and much more. Well worth the listen HERE.
For those taking notes nothing specific was really mentioned in regards to progress on the new Tool album, though Maynard did talk about the songwriting process.
