Interview: Billy Howerdel

When Billy Howerdel was working as a guitar tech for the band Tool, he played some of his songs for singer Maynard James Keenan, and got some good news - MJK liked them, and eventually joined up with Howerdel in the band A Perfect Circle. The first APC album Mer de Noms came out in 2000, revealing a potent mix of heavy and atmospheric sounds. This was followed up in 2003 by Thirteenth Step - a favorite of many fans of the band - and in 2004 by the covers album Emotive. APC's eagerly awaited next album, Eat the Elephant, comes out on April 20. This interview was for noozhawk.com for A Perfect Circle's concert at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara on 4/17/18. It was done by email, with answers received 4/9/18. (Tim Cadiente photo)
