Tool Singer Thinks Vince Neil’s Wine-Making Techniques Are Better Suited To The Deli Counter

vinceneil.jpgLittle did we know that Tool’s Maynard James Keenan made wines in Arizona under the name Caduceus (warning: the site is a little Myst-y). As a celebrity who makes wine, he’s also sampled the wines of other celebrities, and he did a little dishing for The Onion:

AVC: Any celebrity wines you recommend? Supposedly Francis Ford Coppola’s line is worth trying.

MJK: Oh, yeah–the Coppola wines are actually pretty good. I haven’t had anything this year, but what I remember having, it actually was relevant. I would avoid at all costs anything resembling Vince Neil’s wine…

AVC: Vince Neil has a wine?

MJK: Oh, good God–you can’t even get near the glass. You pour it, and you’re like, “Oh, my fucking God–are there pickles in here?”

Yes, this is what rock feuds have come down to in 2006: sniping over a wine’s nose. Actually, we’re a little disappointed by this news–we really thought Vince Neil was interested in wine because of its taste, not its effects.

    Forget the wine, that new CD packaging is annoying!

    Really, after all those years’ worth of blow, does anybody think Vince Neil’s nose is good for shit?

  3. Come a little Miroslav Klose You're My Kind of Man

    Whateva. But a word to the wise: don’t buy Tommy Lee’s Coconut Milk… ‘Cause it’s not coconut milk.

    I think Idolator needs to do a blind taste test. And invite me!

  6. any such name

    I’m sorry, but Maynard has a wine called Merkin Vineyards. That beats anything Coppola puts out, hands-down.

  7. Hacky McHackerstein

    Probably not, but I bet Vince Neil’s White Zinfandel sells really well in the red states.

  8. Tyler Knew and Turk! Wendell Ate Won Too

    Does Vince’s come in a tallboy can? I would be interested in that.

    Speaking of Maynard’s wine, I’m wondering how his quest for the Templar grape is going…
