Lead singer of bands: Tool and A Perfect Circle. very talented, perhaps one of the best rock vocalists ever, and writes some really deep lyrics as well. While many complain that he doesnt appreciate his fans, he claims that he doesnt want to hear millions of people constantly praising his work because he thinks it will eventually make him and the band lazy and discontinue to produce the top quality music they do and slump down to being a mediocre band. but he is appreciative if you pay attention, if you ever goto concerts thats usually where he takes a little time to thank the fans. i went to one in New York and he stated, "sometimes we forget why we do this. theres so much bullshit in this business. so thank you for reminding us tonight why we do this"

The lead singer of the music bands, Tool and A Perfect Circle. Known to study and write his songs about or relating to his beliefs <i>Qabalah,</i> and he doesn't fall into the mainstream fake music of today and most music from the past. Maynard is real.
One of Maynard's songs, The Patient, number three on his latest Tool cd, Lateralus is basically about how he doesnt want people to just go to his concerts and buy his music and not know what your doing. He wants people to listen to his words and understand them, he doesnt feel he doing enough and may walk away...

Pure genius, a rare oddity.It's almost like having an out of body experience when you hear his voice.I have seen him twice, once with Tool, when I was 16, and once this year with A Perfect Circle.It's an audial orgasm every time.
a perfect circle,Tool
