Legendary frontmen of Puscifer and Tool, Maynard James Keenan had a new interview with Joe Rogan’s latest podcast: Joe Rogan Experience #1326.

Maynard revealed the reason for the huge delay of the upcoming Tool album, Fear Inoculum and said that he lifted a big weight off his chest.

Here is what he said:

“When you get successful, you think you’re right about everything. You’re pretty sure as that individual, ‘I am right and you are wrong. I’m successful and we’re successful because of me, not because of you.’

It’s not that bad with us… There’s a dynamic of, ‘I want this and I’ve always gotten my way and that’s why we’re successful because I don’t compromise.’

He continued and talked about finishing the latest Tool album:

“Fuck, what a weight lifted off my chest. It took a lot of work. The four of us are a lot of fucking work just to get anywhere. Oh my God – everything’s a fucking committee meeting and always gets shot down.”
