Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Recalls Second Bout With COVID-19

Maynard James Keenan has revealed that he contracted COVID-19 twice in a span of nine months last year.

The Tool frontman was first infected with the coronavirus in February 2020, while touring with the band in Australia and New Zealand. The deadly disease hit him again in November.

“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,” he said during George Stroumboulopoulos‘ Apple Music Hits on Wednesday.

The multi-talented artist said he did not stay at the hospital for long as he was told, “Okay, we can keep you here, but you’re fighting 12 other people for a bed and a ventilator we don’t have.”

Keenan said he was still dealing with the residual effects of the viral attack, suffering from coughing fits every other day, because his lungs are still damaged at the tips.
