1986 - 1987
"Walking like a starving butler, who among the finger rests" 
Last Updated: 11/2009

This section is recommended for those interested in the earliest captures of Maynard James Keenan on tape or film (CAD, TexANS). The quality varies over the four known sources and they are what they are. It is doubtful how palpable these are but those that are interested  will find these artifacts to be of serious interest; at least in regards to the development +_ evolution of Tool's enigmatic front-man. These are not exceptionally hard-to-find, however, the overwhelming majority of copies are of unknown origin. There is a history of people selling the "Fingernails" release & the performance from 04/17/1987 on eBay in the late 1990's & into the 2000's. These are not actually a new addition to CU.org however this section of the site & the listing of the recordings were first published in 2006 with the content + look as it is presented now. However, the information was listed in 2000 but I took the information down when I found people using the information (and links!) for eBay (and online) auctions/sales. Behavior & activity of illegal means is not to be tolerated. Enjoy responsibly
