Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Pursues Interior Design – Moments That Nearly Destroyed Rock
There are many rockers who move to California to get discovered, but Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan was more intrigued with pursuing a career in interior design and set decoration upon arriving in Los Angeles. The future frontman attended the Kendall College of Art and Design and took odd jobs like providing feng shui for a pet store.
Fortunately, he would later meet guitarist Adam Jones at a party and they bonded, eventually putting together the beginnings of what would become Tool. While Keenan didn’t end up in interior design, he is still able to use his creativity in performing as a member of such bands as Puscifer and A Perfect Circle as well as Tool. Interior design’s loss is hard rock’s gain, tenfold!
