Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan has signed on to write a bi-weekly column for the Phoenix New Times newspaper’s online blog Up on the Sun.
According to a statement made by the paper – the prog-metal icon will have his first column published on Monday, September 18, and it could be about anything from music to wine to whatever else comes into his head.
Maynard James Keenan has a lot on his resume. He’s a musician, known for leading Puscifer, Tool, and A Perfect Circle, an actor, record producer, comedian, multimedia artist, and winemaker in Northern Arizona, where he co-owns Arizona Stronghold Vineyards, and oversees Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards.
Now he’s got another feather for his cap: We’re pleased to announce that Keenan will be penning a biweekly column for Up on the Sun and Phoenix New Times.
In typical Maynard James Keenan fashion, the column will feature his freewheeling examinations on whatever he feels like writing about, including music, wine, and…well, you’ll see.
The column debuts on Monday, September 10, here at Up on the Sun, so mark your calendars.
Keenan will be visiting Australia with A Perfect Circle as part of the Soundwave Festival in February/March.
