Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell guest on new Deftones album


92.3 KOMP FM speaking with Deftones singer Chino Moreno about the new album, below some excerpts:


"Jerry is on the new Deftones album. I didn't know if he wanted anybody to know or not. But I guess I've just spilled the beans. But he came in… There's this one track that… in the demo stages of it, I was, like, 'There's this hole in there…'"

"In Deftones songs, there's not really any guitar solos per se, but there was a section in there where there was room for not necessarily a typical solo, but it had an area where it could use something like what he does, especially… just his style and the way he plays guitar. So I sent him the track, and then he sent me a demo of it back, like, two days later. So, yeah, when we recorded the song properly for the album, he came in and laid it down. And it's awesome. It's like you're hearing a Deftones song, but all of a sudden, a little bit of Alice In Chains seeps its way in there, and it's kind of neat. I mean, me, as a fan, I was just sitting back and a little tear came out of my eye."
