BJ Hammerstein of Get Real Detroit had the chance to speak with the notoriously difficult interviewee Maynard James Keenan, frontman of Tool and A Perfect Circle. Asked whether Tool has double meanings in it’s music, Keenan said, “There are mixed messages within our music, but that has to do with promoting free thought. Our music tends to make you think more, and push you in that direction rather then trying to suppress your thinking and keeping you confined with fear. There might be anger, sorrow, introspect and resolve in our music, but it’s not really fear-based.” Getrealdetroit.com has since removed the article.
