56-year-old American singer Maynard James Keenan started his music career playing bass for TexA.N.S. and singing for Children of the Anachronistic Dynasty during the 1980s. Keenan met Adam Jones around the 1990s and together they formed Tool.
On August 30, 2019, Tool released their fifth studio album named ‘Fear Inoculum‘ which was the band’s first album since the release of ‘10,000 Days’ album in 2006.
