The iconic leader of Tool and Puscifer, the untold story of Maynard James Keenan during the recording process of his latest studio album, Fear Inoculum, revealed by the band’s bassist, Justin Chancellor.
Chancellor was the recent guest of the Visions magazine interview, and said Maynard was very upset with his bandmates after preparing for the set-up and final ending of the song for a year.
“At some point, you four stand in a room and play music?”
“Yeah, this time it was about two years ago. What a long time. We played together for about two weeks. Then and there we decided which pieces to record.
Additionally, we kept one or two things open, as we always do, to spontaneously build something out of it, together.
After those two weeks, we did the fine-tuning and the definite song endings – for a year. During that time Maynard annoyed us to no end *laughs* he really wanted to go in the studio!”
