A Perfect Circle

A perfect circle - a perfect circle

A Perfect Circle (often referred to as APC) was an alternative rock band, formed by guitarist Billy Howerdel. Howerdel had worked as a guitar tech for bands such as Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, Fishbone, Guns N' Roses and Tool. He played demos of his music to Tool's singer, Maynard James Keenan. Maynard offered himself as vocalist should Howerdel form a band. Howerdel was initially hesitant about this as he originally wanted a female singer. What do you guys think about this band?

I've heard the name, but not their music; they sound interesting from your description. How many albums do they have, and which one would you recommend checking out first?

I love APC as well. I love to pull up next to someone who has their rap music playing really loud and pop in them or Tool and turn it up louder. I usually think to myself "Now this takes talent". (I generally think that most rap artists really have no real talent other than to talk faster than normal.) I can't imagine APC with a female lead singer. Maynard fits in there so perfectly.

The band was supposed to have a new lead singer with each album..however the popularity and success of Maynard carried him over into staying with them because of the chemistry..there were other singers supposed to have been petitioned to join in later... I like the band..the line up has changed a couple of times...Twiggy formerly of Marilyn Manson joined as a guitarists...which is another musician I enjoy
