Every hardcore Tool fan (and there are a LOT of them) has wondered what the inside of singer Maynard James Keenan's home looks like. You may imagine Maynard dwelling in some sort of psychedelic kaleidoscope or even one of the worlds created for a Tool music video, and you wouldn't be entirely incorrect. Luckily, if you've got $2.795 million burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy Maynard's home in the Hollywood Hills.
Maynard James Keenan once said, "F--- your tattoos," in a little song called 'Ænima,' but the vocalist hasn't let that statement stop him from getting some ink of his own. Maynard has sported a few tats for a while now, but the musician / cult leader has just gotten himself an entire half-sleeve on his right arm.
Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan has always managed to see a bigger picture than just music, occasionally dabbling in acting and keeping a keen eye on the visual aspects of his bands' careers.

Do you know what Puscifer is? Sure, Puscifer are an experimental, comedic and electronically-themed rock band featuring Tool / A Perfect Circle singer Maynard James Keenan, but do you really know what Puscifer is? The band questions your understanding, so Puscifer brought in 'Breaking Bad' actor / 'Mr. Show' mastermind Bob Odenkirk to explain.
Maynard James Keenan's 50th birthday isn't until May 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.
Maynard James Keenan is truly an enigma. Just when you think you've figured him out, a surprise left turn leaves the listener disoriented but fascinated still. For the next installment of a staggering number of releases from Puscifer, the band is soon to unveil 'What is…' and as a teaser, the group's performance of 'Toma' from the DVD has been unveiled.
