„It's a purging of sorts. Like, when you're all done doing your laundry and it's fresh and bright, but washing the clothes, you wouldn't want to get in while it's spinning around.“
On why his band Tool is like a washing machine — reported in Jim Sullivan (July 4, 1997) "Lollapalooza Still Packs A Wallop", Boston Globe, p. D1.
„It’s in my blood. My great-grandfather made wine and it’s a tradition I want to pass on to my son.“
On his work with his vineyard in Northern Arizona and wine label of the same name, Caduceus — reported in Jon Dolan (August 2006) "33 Things You Should Know About Tool" http://www.blender.com/guide/articles.aspx?id=2002, Blender, Alpha Media Group Inc.
„One of my biggest heroes in music has been David Bowie. He's said, `I'm going to be a painter now, or I'm going to do some films,' and his audience is very forgiving, because they understand him as an artist. Whether you agree or like the result, you respect that he's expressing his artistic feelings.“
The Record staff (March 22, 2000) "Music News & Notes", The Record, p. Y4.
„You can grow grapes in almost any part of the world. You just have to develop your palate enough to realize wine is an expression of the place where you make it. You don't have to take over the world; just be an artist and express your area.“
George Varga (November 7, 2008) "Tool lead singer hits the right notes in the winemaking community", The San Diego Union-Tribune, p. E-1.
„The process that we go through in recording with Tool is very organic, but at the same time it is very thought out. There is a very left-brain process of dissecting what we're doing and drawing from source material; it's very research oriented and esoteric.“
Neil Strauss (March 29, 2000) "A brain comes full circle: Rock musician Maynard James Keenan, of the bands Tool and A Perfect Circle", The New York Times, p. B3.
„I think there’s a reason why wine figures into so many religions. There’s something transcendent about it. It’s sort of the way that music is more than the sum of its parts. You have all these elements that make up the terroir that wine can communicate.“
Matthew Lickona (December 24, 2008) "Hedonistic" http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2008/dec/24/Hedonistic/, San Diego Reader.
„The army influences everything I do. Certainly it teaches you discipline, which is a necessary element of development. I think there's more of a collaborative understanding in the band because of that.“
Iain Shedden (July 20, 2001) "Tool a bigger `threat' than any rapper", The Australian, p. 10.
„Tool is not Slayer. I went to art school. I spent three years in the military. There's more to me than throwing devil horns.“

„It's the role of us to run our government, the government by the people, for the people, and I don't think our government is listening to the people.
