Hard Rock Smackdowns: Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Takes Fan Hostage

This may be the only time a band member has literally taken a fan hostage during a live performance. At 2:45 in the footage, a fan rushes the stage only to be taken down by Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, who put the fan in a chokehold while continuing to sing. Keenan sat on the fan and refused to let him go for a full 10 minutes. Obviously he didn’t know that Keenan is a master of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
