Published

on

Who is Chino Moreno?

Chino Moreno is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, guitarist and co-founder of the alternative metal band Deftones, while he has also been involved in several side-projects, including bands Team Sleep and Crosses.

Chino Moreno Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Camilo Wong Moreno was born on 20 June 1973, in Sacramento, California, USA, the second of five children born to a Mexican-Chinese mother and a Mexican father.

Moreno was given the nickname “Chino” – “Chinese” in Spanish – by his uncles when he was a child, due to his predominantly Asian appearance. He grew up in Oak Park and went to McClatchy High School, where he met Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham, his future Deftones bandmates. Before music, Chino worked at Tower Records in its shipping department.

Career Beginnings

Deftones’ beginnings can be traced back to the mid-1980s. Chino and two of his high school friends bonded together over similar music tastes and began jamming together. They started by playing covers of bands such as Slayer and Metallica, and eventually began writing their own music, plus recruiting drummer Abe Cunningham and bassist Dominic Garcia in 1988 to form Deftones.

However, their beginnings were rather turbulent, and the line-up changed a lot in the early years – Cunningham left to join another band, and Garcia switched to drums. Chi Cheng then joined as the bassist, and the band recorded a four-track demo soon afterwards. John Taylor briefly replaced Garcia on drums in 1991 before Cunningham returned in 1993.

Deftones started playing club shows in Sacramento, and eventually expanded to San Francisco and Los Angeles, where they shared the stage with bands like Korn. The band impressed a Maverick Records representative at a gig in L.A. and was signed after performing three songs for Guy Oseary and Freddy DeMann. The name “Deftones” was created by Carpenter by combining the slang term “def” with the suffix “-tones”, which is a pun on “tone deaf”.

Deftones’ debut album “Adrenaline” came out in 1995, produced by Terry Date. Although it didn’t achieve immediate success, the band toured extensively, and promoted singles online, which helped them gain a loyal following. Surprisingly, the singles “7 Words” and “Bored”, along with their accompanying music videos received little airplay, but the album still sold over 220,000 copies.

In 1997, Deftones worked with Date again on their sophomore album, “Around the Fur”, which showcased a more expansive sound and production. This record was highly anticipated and ultimately propelled the band to stardom in the alternative metal scene, with the singles “My Own Summer (Shove It)” and “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)” receiving significant airplay on MTV and radio, in contrast to their first album.

Rise to Stardom

The following album, “White Pony”, was a major turning point for the band, showcasing experimentation with elements of new wave, dream pop and trip-hop that set them apart from other alternative metal bands of the time. The album was commercially successful, achieving platinum status in the US, and singles “Change (In the House of Flies)” and “Digital Bath” received heavy airplay. Additionally, Moreno’s contributions to the album included guitar lines as well as his vocals. The band received a 2001 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song “Elite”.

However, around this time, Moreno faced challenges due to a throat injury from heavy screaming, which resulted in partial paralysis of his left vocal cord and inflammation of the right one. Despite the doctor’s recommendations to rest his voice, the band continued touring with bassist Chi Cheng taking over screaming duties, while Moreno sang the softer parts of the lyrics.

Deftones continued their rise to fame with the release of their eponymous self-titled album in 2003, which received high praise for its originality and progression in the heavy metal genre. Hits from the album include “Minerva” and “Hexagram”, which peaked at #9 and #16, respectively, on the US Mainstream Rock, while the album achieved gold status in the US.

Three years later, the band released the album “Saturday Night Wrist”, which however failed to match the success of its predecessors, while Chino explained the reason behind this to be a long and tumultuous recording process; he later admitted that he even thought of leaving the band.

Chi Cheng Car Accident and Recent Releases

Deftones began working on their sixth album, Eros, in the fall of 2007, but after Cheng was seriously injured in a car accident in November 2008, the album’s production was put on hold indefinitely. The band continued to update fans on Cheng’s condition through their blog, and a friend of the band, Sergio Vega, took over as bassist. In June 2009, Deftones announced that Eros wouldn’t be released, as they decided to take a new artistic approach that better reflected who they are currently.

In support of Cheng and his family, Korn members, Slipknot and other alternative metal bands recorded and released “A Song for Chi”, while Deftones announced two benefit shows in Los Angeles, and a fan-created website – One Love for Chi – was launched to keep fans updated on Cheng’s condition, and to auction items to support his family. Cheng ultimately passed away in 2013 after spending years in a semi-comatose state.

Deftones continued with the new bassist, and have since released four albums, “Diamond Eyes” (2010), “Koi No Yokan” (2012), “Gore” (2016), and “Ohms” (2020).

Other Projects

Besides his work with Deftones, Chino is active in several other supergroups, including the darkwave, synthpop duo Crosses, alongside Shaun Lopez of Far. Past members include Chuck Doom. Their most recent release is the EP “Permanent Radiant” from 2022 through Warner Records.

Net Worth

Personal Life, Married, Wife, Children, and Addiction

His first wife was Celeste Schroeder. The couple was married from 1997 until 2006, and had two children together before divorcing.

Published

Who is Wes Borland?

American rock ‘n’ roll musician Wesley Louden ‘Wes’ Borland was born in Richmond, Virginia USA, under the Aquarius zodiac sign on 7 February 1975. He’s probably known best for being the backing vocalist and guitarist of the rock ‘n’ roll band Limp Bizkit, while he’s also a co-founder of the metal band Big Dumb Face, and was the guitarist and lead vocalist of the industrial rock ‘n’ roll band Black Light Burns.

Education and early life

Wes and his brother Scott Borland were raised in Richmond by their mother Sally and father Tom Borland, however, not a lot is known about them as Wes respects his parents’ privacy. His brother’s today also a musician – they founded the band Big Dumb Face together in 1998.

Wes began playing the drums while still attending a local elementary school, but chose to switch to guitar because his parents didn’t allow percussive instruments in the house; looking up to his brother, Scott took on the bass guitar, and the two then began playing together.

The family eventually moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and Wes enrolled at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts; because his parents were deeply religious and forced Wes to go to church with them, he left home at the age of 18, but matriculated at around the same time, and then chose to pursue music rather than a college degree.

Career as a musician

Wes joined Lip Bizkit in 1994, only a couple of months after it was formed by John Otto, Sam Rivers and Fred Durst; they quickly established a cult following, and became popular in Florida.

When American turntablist DJ Lethal joined the band in 1995, Wes left because of a disagreement with other members, but returned only a couple of months later, after Limp Bizkit was signed to MCA Records through its record label Mojo. The band was dissatisfied with Mojo, eventually leaving the label and signing with Flip, an Interscope Records’ subsidiary.

Their debut album “Three Dollar Bill, Y’All” was released on 1 July 1997, and its eponymous lead single became a radio hit. The band’s second album, “Significant Other” was released on 22 June 1999, and made them popular in both the US and Europe – it ranked #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and sold close to 650,000 copies in its first week. Limp Bizkit’s third album, “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water” was released on 17 October 2000, again topping Billboard 200, selling more than a million copies in its first week, and was the 18th best-selling album in the US in the decade.

Wes and his brother released Big Dumb Face’s first album, “Duke Lion Fights the Terror!” in March 201; Wes quit Limp Bizkit by the end of the year, citing ‘creative differences’, and in the same year, Wes and his brother formed their new band Eat the Day, with Adam Yas joining as their lead vocalist in January 2003.However, as Wes and the band’s producer Bob Ezrin were dissatisfied with Adam, they continued their search for a lead vocalist, but disbanded without releasing any songs, because they were unable to find a suitable vocalist.

Wes had another failed project, his 2003 rock ‘n’ supergroup The Damning Well, and this led him to return to Limp Bizkit in August 2004. The band’s fifth album “The Unquestionable Truth” was released in 2005, but they went on an hiatus following the release of their 2005 compilation album “Greatest Hitz”.

Wes then spent a couple of months focused on his band Black Light Burns, and they released their second album “The Moment You Realize You’re Going to Fall” on 13 August 2012 – their ‘concept album’ “Lotus Island” followed in January 2013.

Wes began working on his solo career in the first half of 2016, and released his debut album (instrumental) “Crystal Machete” on 3 May; the same year saw the disbandment of Black Light Burns.

The Untold Truth Of Steve Buscemi’s Son – Lucian Buscemi

Published

on

Lucian Buscemi is an American musician and actor, born on 30 June 1990 in New York City, USA. He’s known for being the son of actor, producer and director Steve Buscemi.

Early Life

Lucian is the only child resulting from the marriage between Steve Buscemi and Jo Andres.

Details about Lucian’s educational background are unknown. However, it has been disclosed he spent his childhood in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Despite his parents’ movie-oriented professions, Lucian developed a deep interest in rock and alternative music instead. Influenced by his father, Lucian came to love and grew up listening to the ‘70s legendary punk bands The Ramones and The Clash. He also counts Korn, Blink-182 and Green Day as his influences.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BxhpTZAlben/

Inspired by various music genres, Lucian Buscemi started learning to play various instruments at an early age. Nowadays he’s considered a multi-instrumentalist, as he plays the piano, guitar and bass.

Career

Hollywood – Actor & Musician

Lucian Buscemi’s career as an actor started very early in life, when he was only six years old, as he was cast in a minor role in the movie “Trees Lounge”. Premiered in 1996 and written and directed by Lucian’s father Steve Buscemi, this film centers around a mechanic named Tommy, who lets life pass by while he makes excuses not to leave his alcoholic ways.

In 2007 Lucian was involved i the soundtrack of “Interview”, with his band Fiasco’s song “0157: H7 (Spy Song)”.

The movie starring and directed by his father Steve, is a remake of “The Departed” and although its script received mixed critiques, it was also well reviewed by experts due to its execution.

In 2011 Lucian collaborated in the original soundtrack (OST) of the movie “4:44 Last Day on Earth”. The film – which received mixed reviews – is a SCI-FI drama directed by Abel Ferreira, and is centered in the story of two lovers spending the end of the world together in New York.

Also in 2011, Lucian worked in the sound department of the movie “Sal”, which is based on the real story of the actor/musician Sal Mineo.

Music Career – Fiasco

Along with Jonathan Edelstein and Julian Bennett Holmes, Lucian Buscemi – who was 16 years old at the time – formed the band Fiasco. Fiasco’s sound didn’t fit in only one genre, as the members of the band were inspired by many bands such as Bad Brains, Don Caballero and Lightning Bolt.

Often defined as a mix of math rock and hardcore punk, Lucian told Gothamist that the band members were musically inspired by their personal experiences and preferences: ‘We basically all got into hardcore punk via word of mouth and the internet, and then we wanted to play that style of music.’ As such, he considers the creation of Fiasco wasn’t determined by their environment or social background: ‘Kids getting into that style of music could happen anywhere.’

Despite starting as a cover band, this didn’t deter the members from experimenting with their sound, slowly improving and developing a more unique style: ‘It got noisier and more complex I guess. We started to play in odd time signatures, and the riffs we started writing became harder to play.’ Regardless of the changes the band went through, Fiasco still preserved their punk influences throughout its career.

After signing with the independent company Impose Records, in 2007 Fiasco released their first album – “God Loves Fiasco” – which contained 23 tracks and gained the band recognition in the local music scene of Brooklyn. After that they released various albums such as “Native Canadians” in 2008, “Fabolous Bozo FP” in 2009, and the single “Sinus Rhythm Breakdown” in 2012. These works were highly acclaimed by the public, leading the band to be showcased by not only rock music-especialized magazines, but by several mainstream media platforms.

Fiasco also toured the US several times but entered an indefinite hiatus in 2012, although apparently while in production of the single “Sinus Rhythm Breakdown”.

Its members concentrated on their personal projects – Buscemi has done more acting, in movies such as in “Interview”, “Tree Lounges” and “The Sopranos”, and has also been involved in the soundtracks of several Hollywood productions.

It’s unknown exactly what Lucian Buscemi is doing nowadays.
