Maynard James Keenan w/ wine
Maynard with wine

Wine Spectator: How did you first get interested in wine?

Maynard James Keenan: Being in an occupation that requires me to travel quite a bit, you're just exposed to more cultural things than you would if you were growing up in the suburbs of Boise, Idaho. When you're drinking warm Coca-Cola and your accountants and managers and booking agents are walking around with these nice glasses with nice red juice in it, you say, 'Hey, that doesn't look like what I've been drinking in the dressing room. What's that? I'm not going on stage unless I get to have what you have.'

Starting in June, Maynard James Keenan is going on tour - not with his band Tool (that comes later), but to Whole Foods and other stores to sign bottles of his Caduceus wine. Wine signing dates include June 18th in Springfield, NJ. All of them below.

Tool are playing dates in July and August, All Points West and Lollapalooza included. All of those dates are below too...

Accountants = punk rock.

You try being as successful as Tool without an accountant. I realize that will never happen, but you can keep trying

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 4:40 PM

if you want to measure success monetarily, then sure...

being a successful musician that plays stadiums does in fact = money, so yes...

"and your accountants and managers and booking agents are walking around with these nice glasses with nice red juice in it"

....oh ok.

so, by your logic, you're saying that the jonas bros. are more successful than tool. kickass.

I think i could suffer through the indignity of having an accountant if it meant I could play stadiums.

Um, I think it would probably be better to take it with some smoked Gouda and toast points.
