In what can only be described as a very unlikely grouping, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and TV-chef-turned-internet-meme Guy Fieri will soon guest star on ex-Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar's show Rock & Roll Road Trip. The episode is called Tool'n Around In Flavortown because of course it is, and is set to air on July 7 via AXS TV.
In a way, I really hope this is where Maynard James Keenan announces the new Tool album. Because who better to announce your new record fans have been eagerly awaiting for 13 years alongside than Guy Fieri? Nobody. That's who.
For those unfamiliar with the show, here's the description via AXS TV.
New time slot, same Sammy! The Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar, returns in 12 all-new episodes as he talks and rocks with a roster of enduring icons. In the season premiere, Sammy cruises down to The World’s Largest Honky Tonk, Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX, to take in some local bull-riding action before joining groundbreaking Country superstar Willie Nelson for a spirited conversation, and hitting the stage with Nelson for an unforgettable impromptu jam of the chart-topper’s signature hit “On The Road Again.” The season also features appearances and performances by Vince Neil, Charlie Daniels, Maynard James Keenan, Eddie Money, Guy Fieri, Robbie Krieger, and many more. Set your DVR for the premiere Sunday, May 5 at 8/7c!
