A Brief MTV / 120 Minutes Chat with Maynard
Date: Summer 1993
Transcribed by Mike `Shmoo' Smuland (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This comes from a Lolla '93 special that 120 minutes did back when (ick) Lewis Largent hosted the show. All vocal blunders are included. The only thing I'm not sure of is the proper spelling of "Cam Deleon." Unfortunately you can't see the 0:30 of Maynard slamming his leg along with "Sweat." Lewis Largent: Here we are at 120 Minutes. I'm Lewis Largent backstage at Lollapalooza '93 and our first band conversation, um, of the day - this is Maynard, the lead singer of Tool. You're playing the second stage today and then you're going to play, I guess, the main stage half way through. You have, uh, a new video that is absolutely amazing that was done by, I guess, the guy who did "Three Little Pigs," which was one of the biggest videos that we played on, uh, on MTV, uh, did you, uh, did that have, uh, you both are on the same label as well. Uh, how did you find him and uh, how did the video end up comin' about? Maynard: We were friends with Fred Stuhr for awhile, uhm, actually before the Green Jello video, uh, actually got started and Adam's worked with him a lot. In fact, uh, Cam Deleon and, and Fred Stuhr actually worked on the sculpture that's on the cover of Opiate, so ... we've known him for awhile. Lewis Largent: Well, it's a pretty amazing video. You're going to check it out right now. This is, uh, Tool - "Sober" on 120 Minutes. ---------------- How Largent got that job is beyond me. This was painful for me to transcribe so I hope you liked it even though it's short. You'll have to trust me that the look on Maynard's face is absolutely precious.
