Think the coronavirus pandemic isn't that serious or is perhaps a hoax? Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has a not-so-friendly message for the truthers who think he was paid to say he had COVID-19: "Eat a d--k, dude."
The rocker, who first opened up about his battle against coronavirus with AZ Central in early October, sat down with the Joe Rogan Experience for a new interview to further discuss how he contracted the coronavirus and the impact it had on his body -- all as cases again continue to rise in the United States.
Keenan shared that he was in Australia in February, on tour with Tool to promote their new album, Fear Inoculum. He was out grabbing dinner with a friend when he first noticed a symptom -- which he didn't know was a sign of COVID-19 at the time. "Immediately, food didn't taste right. But this is all hindsight, right?" he said of not being able to taste or smell, which wasn't identified as a symptom early on during the pandemic. "I was sick, then I had to get on an international flight the next morning and fly to New Zealand."
