Maynard James Keenan, singer for Tool and A Perfect Circle, is perhaps the most legendary weirdo still active as a rock musician.
However, even with all that, Tool fans are likely to be seriously surprised by Keenan's behavior in a documentary to be released this summer. Turns out, in addition to being a metal god and a Garbo-esque mystery, Keenan is now operating a winery.
Yup. Didn't see that one coming, didja?
From the press release ...
Blood Into Wine, the documentary about Maynard James Keenan (front man for Tool, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle) and vineyard partner Eric Glomski’s mission to bring notoriety and credibility to Northern Arizona’s burgeoning wine industry, screens at The Flicks on July 11.
FilmCritic.com called the film: "a rock 'n roll version of Sideways,” the Los Angeles Times said “The frisson between his [Keenan] well-crafted personal mystique and the way the film presents him as a dedicated new winemaker learning his craft is intriguing” and the San Diego CityBeat added: "It’s a behind-the-curtain peek at a notoriously publicity-shy celebrity, but more than that, it’s a fascinating look at pioneers braving the Arizona elements to create drinkable art."
