Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan‘s house in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles is on the market, according to L.A. Curbed. Keenan is asking just under $2.8 million for the home, which boasts a pool, hot tub and uncluttered view of the famous Hollywood sign. The Mediterranean-style house also has a lot of Middle Eastern touches and a bold use of different colors in every room, reflecting the fact that Keenan once went to school for interior design.
- The singer now lives in Jerome, Arizona, a former mining village and one-time ghost town that’s home these days to artists, writers and other independent types. Keenan told us why it’s a fascinating place:
- “It’s a magic spot, and it was a copper mining, gold mining town back in the late 1800s, early 1900s. And of course the mines slowed down and closed up, and a lot of people bailed, and it went down to about a population of 50. It’s one of the most active ghost towns in theory. It’s been voted a couple of times in different ‘ghost’ publications as being the most haunted town in the United States.”
- Keenan’s Caduceus Cellars wine business is located in unincorporated land in the nearby Sedona area.
- Although Tool was founded in Los Angeles, Keenan has no love for the city — he sang about his hopes that it would fall into the sea in the classic Tool track “AEnema.”
- Tool is currently on a short tour that finds the band in San Francisco on Wednesday night (March 12th) for the second show of a two-night stand.
