In the recent Vice’s article, Tool and A Perfect Circle vocalist Maynard James Keenan has revealed why he doesn’t like listen to Metallica.

According to recent report of Alternative Nation, he has revealed why it’s difficult to listen to Metallica.

Maynard James Keenan talked about the music bands he listened while he was working. And he said that Metallica is not one of these bands.

Here’s the statement:

“When grapes come in, we have our pH and Brix levels on a whiteboard, but on the far right, we have our playlists. Sometimes I look back at notes and go, ‘We were playing PJ Harvey [last year], let’s put PJ Harvey on again.’ I’m really inspired in the cellar by things that have that darker overtone.

So I’ll listen to Low, PJ Harvey, Gillian Welch…because there’s so much space in those songs, I get things done. When I have Metallica or Slayer on, the predominant thing in face is the song, so I don’t work as well with that music playing.”

On AC/DC, he said:

“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.”
