On Wednesday Deftones Frontman Talks Difficulties Of Today's Music Business was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Chino Moreno admits that Deftones rely on touring for a third of the year to make a living. The 42-year-old says that forging a career in music is "constant work", adding that he warns his musician children to have a back-up plan to secure their future.

Chino tells Radio 1: "I have to give advice to my two sons who are both musicians and they're both totally different. One of them is totally punk, in a thrash, skate-punk band. The other kid is a DJ, an electronic musician.

"I'm very encouraging to them to have fun making music, but it's really hard to 'make it' in music. If they want to have families, children and get married and this and that, it would be good to keep in school and be a kid while you can.

"I think it's great and I like the fact that the music they do is very much what they choose to do. But I'm the parent now, and I'm telling them to have something to fall back on. I think it's important to know that."

Moreno recalls the startling realization that the rock lifestyle isn't always what it's cut out to be as his own band were finding their feet. Read more - here.
