Maynard James Keenan Discusses Recruiting Blonde Redhead To Open On Tool’s Upcoming Tour

Maynard James Keenan has taken to social media to comment on his decision to recruit Blonde Redhead as the opening act on the first leg of Tool’s upcoming tour. The frontman said the following:

“The approach or criteria I usually take when it’s my turn to choose an opener, is Diversity. No point in choosing something similar to us. Most are only here for the headliner anyway. But for those with open hearts and minds, I choose something I feel is compelling in its own way. Blonde Redhead is my pick for this upcoming run. Incredible melodies, complex & subtle rhythms, and non traditional arrangements. But Nothing like Tool And Not meant to be. Obviously. If it’s not your thing, don’t worry. What you came to hear will soon follow. But if any of what you hear resonates, Blonde Redhead have a deep catalog for you to get lost in for years to come. Thank you in advance for welcoming Blonde Redhead into your ear holes. Looking forward to playing for all of you very soon.”

TMZ previously reported that Carey has already been released from custody, but he could face a fine of up to $13,900. The site also shared footage of the arrest, which can be found HERE.

Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Praises His Wife For Her Strength Amid Her Battle With Breast Cancer

Tool’s Maynard James Keenan has taken to social media to wish his wife, Jennifer Lei Li Keenan, a happy birthday, while also praising her for her strength as she battles breast cancer. The frontman said the following:

“Today is my wife’s Birthday. @licoricelust I’m going to guess that it will be viewed as her favorite. In late Nov she felt a lump in her breast. On X-mas eve, she was diagnosed with cancer. She didn’t collapse into a pile of self pity. She didn’t launch into an entitlement rage. She didn’t act out in any self destructive manner. Instead she asked the right questions, listened to her doctors, made a plan, and stuck to it. And when there were things she couldn’t do on her own, she asked for help. Before the chemo could take her hair, she cut it all off and had our friend Brooke make her a wig to match. And then she went to work. No one was the wiser. She’s successfully navigated both the chemo and the surgery, and now begins the radiation. And all without whining or bitching. She is my rock. She is my muse. She is my ALL. Be like Jen. Happy Birthday, My Love. Cheers to this one and many more.”
