TOOL Frontman's Memoir Gets A Cool Trailer, Release Date
A Perfect Union of Contrary Things, the biography written by Maynard James Keenan about his life, as well as co-author and Keenan's close friend Sarah Jensen, will be 320 pages and will be out on November 8.
Until now, Maynard's fans have had access to only an abridged version of his story. A Perfect Union of Contrary Things presents the outtakes, the scenes of disappointment and triumph, and the events that led him to take one step after the next, to change direction, to explore sometimes surprising opportunities. Included are sidebars in his own words, often humorous anecdotes that illuminate the narrative, as well as commentary by his family members, friends, instructors, and industry colleagues. The book also features a foreword by Alex Grey, an American visionary artist and longtime friend of Keenan. Accompanying the text are photos of Keenan from childhood to the present.
