Maynard perfectly alive.
Metal vocalist Maynard was said to have died yesterday but is quite alive.

On June 25, 2002 false news was posted about the death of Maynard, a vocalist from such bands as A Perfect Circle and Tool.

Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel were recording material for the upcoming A PERFECT CIRCLE record, when a series of support beams gave way under thousands of pounds of old PA speakers resting ontop of it, crushing Maynard who was singing in the recording room below it. He was instantly killed as his dearest friend Billy looked on. He was declared dead at 1:03pm by the state coroner. (For more please visit Maynard James Keenan, 1964-2002)

Many people refused to believe this news and it turned out to be a product of the Fake TechTV Article Generator.

Users of the websites LiveJournal.com, Shoutweb.com and many others were fooled by this news.

In conclustion the internet is just like the daily newspaper, Just because you read it doesn't mean its true!
