otherwise known as Chino, is the lead singer from Deftones. Chino means
Chinese in Spanish. Born on 20th June 1973, he is the second youngest
member in the group. His favourite drink appears to be Vodka and Gatorade.
Chino's unique screams are created by him inhaling into the microphone!!
Chino has several tattoos, which include the Virgin Mary. Also he enjoys
skateboarding and one of his idols is a pro skateboarder named Mark
Gonzalez. Chino is married and has two children, Kristian and Jakobi.
One of Chinos previous jobs was
working in a cafeteria. Chino has been arrested for breaking and entering
private premises, but was not charged. His favourite TV show is 'Good
Times' and claims that he would leave the Deftones to join a band called 'Weezer'
if given the opportunity.

Chi Ling Dai Cheng [or Chi for short] is the bass player in Deftones. Chi

||This is Frank Delgago, who
is the DJ for the band. Not many people know much about this guy, except
that a lot of his audio work is made apparent in songs like 'My Own
Summer', 'Around the Fur' and 'Headup'. His birthday is November 29th, and
i'm not too sure about the year!!
Before he joined the Deftones, Frank
was in a band called the Socialistics, who are based in Los Angeles.
[nickname Steph] is the
guitar player from Deftones. Born on August 3rd 1970, he likes to wear
long shorts at concerts....and is also the only band member no to be
married! He smokes pot and one of his favourite places to visit is
Amsterdam [i hope he isn't bent]. His list of musical influences include
the oh-so heavy Bee-Gees.
One of Steph's previous jobs was a
telemarketer, a job from which he got fired from, because he provided
false information to customers!
||This is Abran Cunningham,
or Abe just for short. He is the youngest member of the Deftones, being
born on July 27th 1973. He is married to Annalyn and he also plays the
drums for the band. He is always giving tributes to his parents who taught
him how to play the drums. He has one of his nipples pierced and enjoys
listening to Elvis Costello.
Abe has previously worked in a band
called Fallacy but didn't like their stlye of music and hence joined the
Deftones. His previous jobs consisted of working as a waiter, busboy and a
cook in a restaurant. Abe enjoys a good beer and loved football [soccer in
American talk!] as a youngster...in my opinion he has a good taste in
