Tool singer Maynard James Keenan still recovering from COVID-19
Tool and Puscifer vocalist Maynard James Keenan contracted COVID-19 in late February and is still suffering residual effects of the illness. In a new interview with AZCentral, Keenan says that although he is considered recovered, he is still dealing with some issues. Asked if he is "feeling all right now," Keen had this to say:
"Well no. I still have the cough. Every other day, I have these coughing fits because my lungs are still damaged at the tips. And I just got over the inflammation that was going on with my wrist and hands. I had an autoimmune attack on my system in the form of, like, a rheumatoid arthritis. Basically, from what I understand, it attacks weird spots and it's random. So that's what I got. That was my prize."Keenan also revealed that several of his friends and family members contracted the illness as well:
"Several of my friends, too. Very not old people, young people, in shape, runners, who contracted it as well. And they're still dealing with some of the after-effects. I lost a few family members."You can read the entire interview here.
