The end of Tool/APC?

Has Maynard James Keenan, the frontman of both the dark, heavy-metal art band Tool and the somewhat lighter A Perfect Circle, found Jesus and been born again? Well ...

Recent postings on two Tool Web sites — one of them purportedly by
Keenan himself — contend that the singer has found religion and has left Tool. Could this really be? On Tuesday afternoon (April 5), MTV News' Kurt Loder e-mailed Keenan for confirmation, and this is what he e-mailed back: "I did, in fact, find Jesus. More news to follow. God bless ya."

MTV Story

Two influential people in such a short time "finding god" and ditching their bandmates? What is up with the music world these days. Such a shame they can't come to a compromise where by they can still make music with their bands, instead of taking off like a bunch of [insert long derrogatory phrase of obsceneties].

Guess it's too late to be an April Fool's joke, huh? So he goes from writing "Judith" attacking blind faith, to following it? Whatever, I'm gonna have to chalk him up with Head from Korn.

I heard this the other day, and it's disappointing that this is interfering with his music. Hopefully it won't be the end of Tool/APC, they're both awesome bands.
I guess we'll see.

Wonder who'll be next.

Indeed, I was quite relieved to find out he was just blowin smoke. The fact it was over a few days and not just isolated to the 1st made it seem alot more believeable, that and the whole thing with Head which was not bs kind of made it seem plausable.

"Christians, huh? So forgive me." - Bill Hicks

Good news, April fools fans. The writing and recording is back under way. When approached for comment on his recent encounter with the Son of God, Maynard said, "That guy's a punk!"
As it turns out, Maynard was out "location scouting" near the Fourth Street bridge in downtown Los Angeles when he "found Jesus."
"Turns out he was here the whole time, and not that difficult to find if you know where to look," Maynard reported. Apparently Jesus offered him the position of campaign manager for his new line of "Holier Than Thou" sparkling holy water, which Maynard of course accepted. What wasn't obvious was that this guy is a total drunk. It's an occupational hazard. Every time our Lord goes to get a glass of water, it transforms into a generic grocery store Merlot. Because the alcoholic is the Son of God and an all-knowing being, he knew of Maynard�s extensive interest in collecting wine. So he went to work trying to get his lips on it. Maynard caught J.C. in his cellar transforming his precious wine collection into urine, then pissing it into the empty "sparkling holy water" bottles for the eventual sale to all those people who bought, read, and embraced "The Celestine Prophesy." Tragic.
"Truth be told," Maynard confessed, "I wasn't feeling top notch when I found him. The evening prior to the day in question I had over-indulged in a series of bad Molotov shrimp cocktails with a side of Makers Mark and twin strippers. So after an entire night of G.I. Blowouts, hot/cold sweats, and blurred vision, it's very possible that the guy I met wasn't even Jesus at all. For all I know, it was Willem Dafoe."

Maynard finding jesus....LOL, yeah right. Wasn't worried for second!
