Thats awesome. Deftones have been around for a while, have a large fan base, but probably not as financially sucessful as Korn or even Disturbed. Medical bills pile up and get outrageous, especially for someone who has spent 6 months in a hospital

Im a bit suprised to see these 3 to work together, especially whats the Sevendust connection? I always imagined that guys like Korn and Slipknot laugh at bands like Sevendust (which happens to be the best of the 3 in my opinion)

I've never liked the Deftones, can't see what's su[pposed to be so great and innovative about them. I really hope he gets well though and it's cool of these bands to help him out. I love Sevendust.

I've had a good variation going today mate. UB40, Ian Dury, madness, Assassin, Non Phixion, Snoop Dogg. Ska and reggae was my first love way before metal and hip-hop so it's kind of daily listening for me.

Now playing: Ian Dury - Clever Trevor

I hate how people assume that beacuse Slipknot makes big money they are only in it for the money. And what makes them scum anyways? The fact that they are making a charity song for someone? Or that they make more money than your favorite band?
Music is their job, and they want to get paid. You want to get paid for your job don't you? They work hard for their money, you work hard for yours.

the connection is Clint Lowery (sevendust) played with Korn for a year. Chino (deftones) does vocals for a track on sevendust's 2nd disc 'Hone' and all of these bands have played together, especially slipknot and sevendust who were both mainstage for tattoo the earth festival

On topic, though, I like the Deftones (especially "White Pony") and hope Chi makes a full recovery.

T_O_G, yeah The Cure are (well... were) brilliant. They've got one amazing catalog.
On metal side of things, I like Slipknot's "Iowa" plus I think they're a band with a unique sound, like it or not. As for Korn, no thanks, not for me. Sevendust has some good stuff. They're a bit more melodic but still good stuff. My complaint with them is that most of their albums are 50% good and the rest of the stuff's just plain average / who cares level. Heh.. I thought Id get murdered here for even mentioning INXS! "Welcome to Wherever you are" is one brilliant album, just for the record

Korn are great in comparison to these other bands. Sh1tslot has gotten extremely out of hand. Theres a kid who calls himself a metalhead, yet every thread of clothing hes got has the SlipKnot label on it. I wouldn't be suprised if they make Slipknot nappies for the two year old "maggot".
