The iconic frontman of Puscifer and Tool, Maynard James Keenan had a recent interview with LA Weekly’s Katherine Turman and revealed the answer to the most-asked question to Tool members nowadays: “Will it take yet another 13 years to make a new album?”
Katherine Turman asked this:
“And what about a record’s completion?”
Maynard James Keenan responded:
“Just f**king finish it. I think a lot of bands get in their own way when they start to overthink things. I guess there’s still a preciousness from our generation and before our generation that the album has to be perfect. There’s no such thing.
If you go back and listen to those old recordings that you were told your whole life were perfect, you start going, ‘oh, that’s not right.’ That’s f**ked up. Old Zeppelin recordings where they’re just duct-taping together different takes from different times and different guitars; those things are fine. That’s what that moment was.”
“You just have to let it go. It’s done because it’s done. It’s not done because it’s perfect, it’s done because you’ve captured where you were right then in that month, in that day, in that week. In our case, in that 13 years or whatever. But it is what it is. That’s a cross-section of what we went through.”
