He may be one of the most popular rock stars on planet Earth (no exaggeration), but Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan doesn’t show up on TV too often. Halloween, however, is a special time, and so Keenan chose the moment to show up on the Late Show With David Letterman with his side project Puscifer. With his feathered wig, his fake (?) mustache, and his leisure suit, Keenan seemed like he was dressed as Kenny Rogers, or maybe a late-period Allman, for the night. Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer chipped in with a heady space-prog keyboard solo, which I didn’t know he had in him. Watch it all unfold below.
Puscifer’s self-released album Conditions Of My Parole is out now.
