If you have been around rock music for any length of time then there a few a names that you automatically know when you talk about the genre. Metallica, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols and unless you have been living under a rock, under a bridge in the middle of Idaho you have to throw Deftones in there also.
Deftones is one of those groups that came upon the scene and became like a snowball. Gaining momentum as they went and building into a massive rock group. From the beginnings in 1988 as buddies who liked skateboarding in Sacramento, CA to the evolution of one of the most influential and beloved rock bands, it has been a steady ride that has had its ups and downs.
From cult following to major player in the industry, Deftones have been through most rock cliche’s and lived to tell about it. Original bassist Chi Cheng had a serious car accident leaving him in a minimally conscious state ever since, causing them to scrap the Eros album and rethink their musical direction in light of their thoughts about Cheng and his accident.
After 6 albums and over 20 years of history, including winning a Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 2001 for the song "Elite" from the White Pony album. Deftones are as strong and vital to music history as ever.
They bring their latest offering, Diamond Eyes, out to play for this tour and are sure to have all the energy and charisma that have helped to sustain them for all these years. You will not want to miss this show.
