MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN CAUTIOUS OF INDECENCY CRACKDOWN

Since Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl, there has been a crackdown on just what can and can not be said on television and radio. For rock bands, that may mean cutting back on lyrics. A Perfect Circle's lead singer Maynard James Keenan told us the recent indecency crackdown is worse than McCarthyism: "I think it's beyond McCarthyism. I think it's insanity. I have friends who, specific friend who has a, who lives with a woman who grew up in Germany in the '30s and '40s, and so she's looking around and going, 'I've seen this...I know where this goes.' So we really have to be cautious and, you know, not let history repeat itself."


A Perfect Circle, along with tour opener Burning Brides, visit North Little Rock tonight (Wednesday, May 26th).
