Maynard James Keenan has a lot on his resume. He's a musician, known for leading Puscifer, Tool, and A Perfect Circle, an actor, record producer, comedian, multimedia artist, and winemaker in Northern Arizona, where he co-owns Arizona Stronghold Vineyards, and oversees Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards.

Now he's got another feather for his cap: We're pleased to announced that Keenan will be penning a biweekly column for Up on the Sun and Phoenix New Times.

In typical Maynard James Keenan fashion, the column will feature his freewheeling examinations on whatever he feels like writing about, including music, wine, and...well, you'll see.

The column debuts on Monday, September 10, here at Up on the Sun, so mark your calendars. In the meantime, get caught up with Maynard James Keenan's previous interactions with Phoenix New Times:
