KISS Guitarist Tommy Thayer Gets Ready For Competition With Tool Frontman Maynard James Keenan


KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing thrilling news to his fans as he revealed a brand new purchase of vineyard property and apparently, Thayer is getting into the wine business, creating competition to a fellow musician who has created himself a brand as a winemaker, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan.

As many of you know, there are countless musicians who also own a business apart from their music career whether about making coffee, tequila, or real estate. However, the most famous choice of job is to start their own wine business since it’s a prestigious business and they get to create their own wine while making money.

When Maynard James Keenan Started To Make Wine?


Just like many others, Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan has his own winery in Jerome, Arizona named Caduceus Cellars which was founded way back in 2004. The success of his wine business was even documented in March 2010 with a documentary named ‘Blood Into Wine’ after selling out all the wines one by one.

There’s no doubt that Maynard James Keenan is one of the best winemakers among many of his musician friends, however, there is a brand new name in the competition as Tommy Thayer shared a post on his official Twitter page, revealing that he’s getting into the wine-making business.
