You may think Maynard would take on three separate personas for his respective projects, but he goes way further, taking on countless alter egos.
A Perfect Circle
Congrats are in order for Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan, who just became a father again.

Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan's birthday was back in April, but the prolific musician celebrated his 50th in grand fashion on May 10 and May 11. Maynard's 'Cinquanta' event was held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the guest of honor performed with both A Perfect Circle and Puscifer during the occasion.
It was a hotly contested battle all week long, but Disturbed's 'Stupify' overtook Godsmack's 'Awake' following a late-week rally to emerge victorious in the last Classic Cage Match. The hard rocking single from 2000 featuring Dan Donegan's driving riffs and David Draiman's rhythmically lyrical delivery has now taken two Classic Cage Match battles in hopes of making it to the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame.
Musicians tend to shy away from the term "supergroup," but it's tough to find another word suitable for the talent that has come together for Altitudes & Attitude. The new band features Anthrax bassist Frank Bello, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and A Perfect Circle drummer Jeff Friedl. Together, the musicians have cooked up a new EP, which will become available on Jan. 14.
Maynard James Keenan's 50th birthday isn't until April of next year, but the multitalented rocker has already got the day planned. On May 10, 2014, Keenan will celebrate his half-century on Earth by performing with both A Perfect Circle and Puscifer in Los Angeles. Adding to the excitement, L.A. alternative rock band Failure, who recently announced plans to reunite, will also play the celebration.
They haven't released a studio album in nearly a decade, but A Perfect Circle are still cranking out a bunch of material. On Nov. 26, the box set 'A Perfect Circle: Featuring Stone and Echo' will be released, featuring live performances of all three APC albums in full. Although the set isn't available until next week, 'Diary of a Lovesong,' from the live 'eMOTIVe' concert, is now streaming.
