Vice has published a new article featuring Tool and A Perfect Circle singer Maynard James Keenan as a guest. Maynard and Vice’s host talked about food, wine and music.
During the conversation, Maynard James Keenan has shared that why he doesn’t want to join rock legends AC/DC.
“Nobody’s ever made a great record that didn’t take a hell of a lot of chances. Do you feel like it’s the same making wine?”
Maynard James Keenan responded:
“In a way, you have to trust your instincts in the [wine] cellar, just like you have to trust your instincts in the studio. But you still have to retrace your steps to have some success and sustainability with that process…
I love AC/DC, but those albums are pretty much the same fucking albums. And that’s fine for them. I will listen to that band. I’m not interested in being that band.”
In addition, he also explained his thoughts about rock band “The Jesus Lizard” and said:
“The gaminess of this dish went perfectly with the wine’s structure, and the cherry skins…. I don’t agree that this song goes with this wine, [but] I’m just super fucking happy that it’s playing right now. Love, love, love the Jesus Lizard….
Then again, there’s a kiss of Brett in here; that’s the [Jesus Lizard vocalist] David Yow. There’s the danger. Too much, all of a sudden you go way the fuck off the rails. But a kiss of Brett in the right balance, you can kiss the danger and not leave a mark.”
