Maynard James Keenan Calls Tool Fans “Insufferable People”

By Amanda Wicks

It’s been nearly ten years since Tool released a new album, thanks, in part, to lead singer Maynard James Keenan being focused on other projects, like his wine label and new band Puscifer. That makes Tool’s appearance at the upcoming Monster Mash Music Festival in Tempe, Arizona all the more special. It will be their only live show this year.

Keenan recently sat down with Phoenix Sun Times, where he didn’t disclose much information about new Tool music. In fact, he exuded a clear and obvious disdain not only for Tool’s music but for the band’s fans as well. When Keenan was asked about the inherent humor to Tool’s music, he responded, “Yeah, it’s there, but people miss it because they’re so focused on the other bulls—. It’s lost. Insufferable people…It’s just ridiculous, retards. I’m sorry. Can’t help them. Way too serious. Too much. Lighten up.”

Elsewhere, he explained that Tool’s other band members had to twist his arm to play the festival. “They had to con me into it,” he said.
