Louis was the illegitimate son of William Armstrong and Mary Est “Mayann” Albert. He was abandoned by his father, a boiler stoker, shortly after his birth and was raised by his paternal grandmother. Then, at the age of five, he was returned to the care of his mother, who at the time worked as a laundress. Together with his mom, they moved to a better area of New Orleans.

    Maynard James Keenan (born James Herbert Keenan) is not your average artist. He is a jack-of-all arts kind of guy. His massive amount of works of art can be visualized as a great river with many streams and tributaries. He has taken on all kinds of roles, a role as a vintner, a comedian, singer/songwriter, and he’s played every band member’s role in at least one of his productions. Because of the deep philosophic meaning his fans find in his lyrical works he is practically seen as a god. Maynard James Keenan is far from divine, he is human, that is what inspires me about him.
