Happy 50th Birthday, Maynard James Keenan (April 17, 1964)
-I believe that music is a force in itself. It is there and it needs an outlet, a medium. In a way, we are just the medium.
- But you know, I’m the negative-Nancy, curmudgeon, glass-half-empty-with-a-leak-in-it guy - which is basically the fuel that fires me up anyway. Without that, we wouldn’t have me.
-There were a lot of choices to make and I always picked artist. I never once picked doctor, lawyer, firemen or something like that. It was always artist.
