Legendary rock and metal personality, Maynard James Keenan is in multiple bands – Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer.

In a recent interview which unearthed by Alternative Nation, Maynard James Keenan has revealed the secret behind his success with multiple bands.

Maynard said:

“Again, just efficiency with the way we were looking to record. I think it just prepared me for this. Efficiency, taking care of my throat, all those things.”

Interviewer asked:

“I would imagine that given what you put into singing, that’s something you need to be mindful of, is protecting your voice. Has that become more important over time?”

Maynard responded:

“It should’ve become more important earlier (laughs). We’ve all been there, right? ‘I maybe shouldn’t have done that as much as I did in college.’” 

On his best place to write songs, he said:

“As far as being able to find head-space, to clear out all the noise I can do that anywhere, really. Just sit in my truck, with a thing called a compact disk and this thing called a pen and some paper on the clipboard and just try and work on stuff in my truck. Which is really the best place to be.

If you’re on your computer, you’re in your house, you can be disturbed but seeing someone across the way in a vehicle, by himself, muttering, no one approaches that person.”
