Maynard James Keenan hopes to make the Four-Eight Wineworks, named for Arizona's status as the 48th state in the Union, Arizona's first wine co-op.

Jerome's Maynard James Keenan is famous primarily as a musician, the frontman of heavy alternative-metal band Tool, whose string of hits in the 1990s and 2000s added a knotty, progressive rock edge to the down-tuned nu-metal sounds that dominated rock radio.

But Keenan spent the past decade devoting an even greater share of his time to wine, with occasional forays into acting. Read the full feature story on Maynard James Keenan.
