Famous rock journalist Eddie Trunk has shared an interesting theory about the recent tweet of Tool singer Maynard James Keenan.
As you remember, Maynard James Keenan has shared a new update on new album and said that new album’s vocal recordings are done. You can see his tweet below.
During the recent episode of Trunk Nation, Eddie Trunk said:
“If you read that tweet, it does not come off like in any way, shape or form there’s any new Tool record imminent. Because what he’s essentially saying in that tweet, and the way I read it, is he is basically passing the buck on that record to the other three guys.
It’s pretty blatantly clear over time here that you’ve got Maynard on one island and the other three guys on another island and I don’t think there’s a lot of camaraderie or interplay between them. They seem [as if they are from] very two completely different worlds. Some feel that Maynard is the reason why this stuff takes forever. Maynard has countered that it’s the other three guys, they always change stuff; they can’t settle on anything.”
He continued and revealed the theory:
“So what he said in that tweet is that he recorded all the vocals and if the other guys finish all the music then after that, there will be a very long mixing process. Then basically he laid out his own plans through like 2020. Puscifer, A Perfect Circle, wine.
To me, I took that whole tweet, and I don’t think you have to be a dummy to look at it that way, is him saying, ‘hey I did my part, this ain’t on me anymore, when they get together, the record will come out. I’m booked for the next year- see ya.‘”
