Posted by on February 4, 2021


Tool/A Perfect Circle/ Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenanhas revealed he contracted COVID-19 for a second time. Keenan initially contracted the virus in February 2020 while he was touring with Tool and now, he has come forward explaining he contracted it a second time towards the end of 2020. Keenan shared his story on Apple Music Hits yesterday (3rd), revealing he “got it like mid-November and ended up in the ER on December 1st.”


He continued:

“Ugly, ugly. Couldn’t breathe. I could barely put two words together without going into a coughing fit that, you know? It ended up kind of also progressing into pneumonia. So, if I stayed in the hospital, they said, ‘Okay, we can keep you here, but you’re fighting 12 other people for a bed and a ventilator we don’t have, so what do you want to do?’ I’m like, ‘Well, I need to breathe and I need to sleep.’ So, you’re just treating symptoms at that point. There’s nothing you can do other than treat the symptom, so for a real cough medicine, not the crap over-the-counter and then like an inhaler, and some antibiotics to fight the pneumonia and strap the f— in.”
