Maynard James Keenan has inspired me since the early ’90s. His lyrics are a mix of poetry and raw energy that lights a fire in my soul. Beyond his artistic prowess, he is unabashedly his own self, at all times, without apology. And he makes damned good wine, too. Seriously, if you haven’t been up to the Merkin Vineyard & Caduceus Cellars Tasting Room in Jerome, AZ, it’s worth the trip. Not to mention, going to Jerome is always a good idea.
So, thank you MJK, for being a constant source of inspiration. From one writer to another, you rock.
Who inspires you?
