Deftones' Vega Says Stephen Carpenter Speculation Is BS

(TeamRock Radio) Deftones bassist Sergio Vega says he's sick of the speculation surrounding the band's relationship with guitarist Stephen Carpenter. Carpenter admitted in February that he originally didn't want to play on eighth album Gore because he wasn't happy with the musical direction.

But he later slammed the suggestion that he was set to leave the band, and stated that the track Hearts/Wires, which had caused his issues, had become one of his favourites on the record.

Now Vega - who joined Deftones in 2009 - tells Rolling Stone: "People want to perceive it as the battle between melodies and the metal dude. They're not coming in with songs like that. We write together. The whole thing is such bullsh*t, to be honest. It just drives me crazy." Read more here.
