Moreno is so damn cool, a big lovely smile on his face while he inspects his troops. Starting off with Rocket, they firmly set the hook in our mouths and away we went. The set list was a full variety spanning from old to new with songs like Knife Party, Swerve City and the very sexy Change. Chino would suck us in and bring us close all warm and fuzzy like, only to have Cunningham and the lads kick us straight in the teeth when the beat dropped. It was an emotional ride!
It's very easy for a band to be placed in a certain category of music, but its fucking amazing when a band creates that category to begin with. The Sex Pistols did it, and The Deftones are continuing to do so. Nu Metal from back in the day - what I'd like to call just plan old 'Fuck Yeah!'
"The Deftones, I'm not familiar with them, what kind of music do they play?" - "FUCK YEAH!" I'd exclaim!
"Oh, word! I love FUCK YEAH. hook me up!"
