(Radio.com) Glamour magazine published a history of Lilith Fair on Wednesday (July 5), which included a strange anecdote about Tool's frontman Maynard James Keenan, who once requested that his all-male band be added to the exclusively female-focused festival lineup.

According to the article, McLachlan said, "All of a sudden [the press was casting me as] the daughter for the new feminist revolution, and I'm either too femi­nist or not feminist enough, depending on who was firing the questions. And every day it was like, 'Why do you hate men? Why don't you have men on the bill?'"

Keenan then remarked, "I asked our booking agent to request an offer to play. He did. They declined. I wanted the 'thank you but no thank you' letter to frame. Never got it." Read more here.
