MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN from TOOL says musicians shouldn’t get too cocky about their success, because sometimes a lot of it comes down to being in the right place at the right time. Even NIRVANA benefitted from that.
Quote, “It just happened to be a perfect time for Nirvana to emerge ’cause people were tired of hair bands. I don’t know. It might have had nothing to do with Nirvana. It was just timing.
“All due respect to all of those musicians, but I feel that the problem then is that generally those musicians feel like they actually created the wave, when they were just on it and were prepared as it crested.”
