Deftones’ Hellraisers

You probably remember Chino riding a mini-Harley during Hexagram’s video shoot. The truth is that Abe and Steff also have one of those mini-bikes, known as “Hellraisers”.

Around the Fur video

As you all might know Stef Carpenter shot a video for “Around the Fur”, but unfortunately, it has never been released. The video was mainly shot in Japan, back in 1998, it contained nudity/drugs scenes. The little secret in all this is that you have already seen a little bit of it. Just insert your […]

Deftones’ bassist – Chi Cheng – has a song with his own name, that is “Chi” from KoRn.

About Scott…

This story was taken from the first Deftones Fan Page ever – DEFTONES SCREAMN CAT PAGE – a nice little story, written by Bryan Dailey (1998) “About 5 years ago I was in a band called, (can you believe?) “ARGYLE WING-NUT” and we played shows at a place called the Cattle Club (check the liner […]

Frank’s Brother

Bobby Nero is Frank Delgado’s brother. Fame is often a by-product of being in a big band like the Deftones. While a Deftones member, Frank Delgado is not the most recognizable Deftones member, but he is fairly well-known. But despite what Frank might accomplish in his band, he probably figures not even to be the most famous member of […]


Well here’s anther old movie with a deftones-related name: “Charles Bronson is CHINO, a “HALF-INDIAN” horse rancher in New Mexico who takes in a teenage runaway, played by Vincent Van Patten. He classes with Maral, a wealthy breeder and falls in love with Maral’s sister. When Maral sees what is going on, he has Chino beaten […]
