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.

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?

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.
