Tool singer's biography lands on New York Times Best Sellers list

Official press release: A Perfect Union of Contrary Things (Backbeat Books) by Sarah Jensen with Maynard James Keenan debuted at No. 10 on the New York Times Best Seller' list of hardcover non-fiction releases. Keenan, who is known for not merely being protective about his personal life but at times pointedly cagey and misleading about his history, is in the midst of a round of book readings. The special evening includes Keenan reading passages from A Perfect Union of Contrary Things with a backdrop of never before seen photos and videos, as well as taking questions from the audience in what will be a rare moment of direct interaction between the elusive musician and the fans of his projects. A Perfect Union of Contrary Things presents the outtakes, the scenes of disappointment and triumph, and the events that led Maynard James Keenan to take one step after the next, to change direction, to explore sometimes-surprising opportunities. Included throughout are passages in Keenan's own words, often-humorous anecdotes that illuminate the narrative. Commentary by his family members, friends, instructors, and industry colleagues rounds out the Sarah Jensen with Maynard James Keenan penned biography with a foreword from American visionary artist and longtime Keenan friend, Alex Grey.

Listen to the WTF podcast with Maynard. He sounds like an edgy 16 year old that never grew up.

in 2016 Korn is more relevant than Tool.

Expected a weird, vague book title. Was not disappointed.
