TOOL Singer MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN Sells Hollywood Hills Home For $2.37 Million

According to Los Angeles Times, Maynard James Keenan of TOOL, A PERFECT CIRCLE and PUSCIFIER has sold his house in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles for $2.37 million. The home, which was originally listed for just under $2.8 million, boasts a pool, hot tub and uncluttered view of the famous Hollywood sign. The Mediterranean-style house also has a lot of Middle Eastern touches and a bold use of different colors in every room, reflecting the fact that Keenan once went to school for interior design.

Keenan now lives in Jerome, Arizona, a former mining village and one-time ghost town that's home these days to artists, writers and other independent types. He told The Pulse Of Radio why it's a fascinating place. "It's a magic spot, and it was a copper mining, gold mining town back in the late 1800s, early 1900s," he said. "And, of course, the mines slowed down and closed up, and a lot of people bailed, and it went down to about a population of 50. It's one of the most active ghost towns in theory. It's been voted a couple of times in different 'ghost' publications as being the most haunted town in the United States."

Keenan's Caduceus Cellars wine business is located in unincorporated land in the nearby Sedona area.

Although TOOL was founded in Los Angeles, Keenan has no love for the city — he sang about his hopes that it would fall into the sea in the classic TOOL track "AEnema".

According to the 2010 census, the population of Jerome is 444.

The town was incorporated in 1889 and produced more than one billion dollars in copper, gold and silver mining over the next 70 years.

After the last of its mines closed in 1953, Jerome's population declined to around 50 people by the end of that decade. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and is now a popular tourist destination.
