Maynard James Keenan’s frontman wishlist.

tenor - Maynard James Keenan's frontman wishlist.

In his interview wuth Revolver magazine, Maynard James Keenan (Tool,Puscifer,Perfect Circle) talks about some of his favorite frontmen/frontwomen that he admires and draws inspiration from.  A name or two on the list may surprise you.

I never saw him onstage other than on video, but he’s amazing with a crowd, and his stand-up albums were like rock records.” Gerald Casale (Devo) “He’s an absolute nightmare in the best…

Busker performs his version of John Lennon’s “Imagine”

20171009 011112 - Busker performs his version of John Lennon's "Imagine"

You’ll want to watch through to the end. This guy knows how to use the moving trains to his advantage! Please follow and…

LouFest 2017 poster2 1 - Loufest in St. Louis on Sept 9th and 10th, featuring Weezer,Snoop Dogg,Cage The Elephan

So disappointed that I can’t get out to Loufest. Would have loved to hit the museum while taking in some great acts at the fest. Not a bad string of good acts on Saturday (Day 1)   ..and how can you go wrong with these two the next day?: Loved Weezer’s performance at Lollapalooza this year and really every Weezer show we’ve seen. I let myself miss Cage the Elephant this time despite looking forward to seeing them the most that day. We had seen Cage at Lolla two times…

So much so that he was included in Lonely Island’s “I’m on boat” which debuted as one of Andy Sandburg’s SNL…
